This method is one of the easiest and most powerful ways to learn to use the Windows 10 command line. The following method is a great way to learn command-line basics while practicing coding.
I love the idea of using a Chromebook as my development and testing machine. Although I’m personally a fan of a Windows machine for coding, I also tend to use Linux laptops for playing games, watching videos, or just for browsing the web.
It’s another great way to learn command-line basics. By doing it on a Chromebook, you’re doing a lot of things that you cannot do with a PC. The command line interface in Windows can be pretty overwhelming.
With a Chromebook, you can run any Windows application (or a Linux application) as a shell and have it run with the same commands and environment you see on the command line. I don’t know about you, but I dont want to learn commands on the same OS that I’m going to use to run my programs. You’re going to have to use cmd.exe (or cmd.exe -safe) to do a lot of advanced command line stuff.
The other key point about chromebook is that it’s so easy to get started with a PC. When you take out a PC and open a terminal, you can open an application that has nothing to do with computer or OS. Chromebook can run as a desktop application. The command line interface in Windows is fairly easy to get started with.
So you can use your regular Windows command line applications as you normally would, but you can also run as a desktop application. This lets you run command line programs from the Windows desktop as well as other applications. And if you want, you can use a Linux-based emulator for Windows.
It’s relatively easy to run a computer as a desktop application. Using a terminal you can open a terminal like you would on most Linux machines. To do this you can type the command: sudo nano /etc/apt/sources.list. You’ll see a line that looks like this: deb file:///usr/share/chromium/linux-stable/chromium-browser/chromium-browser-stable.deb.
Chromium is the default browser in Windows 10, and is a good choice for running executables like Photoshop. There is a Chromium fork called Ubuntu Linux that can run applications that have the Chromium Chromium browser. This fork is recommended as it has security patches and the Chromium fork is more stable.
Here’s the line that has to be changed to get Ubuntu Linux: deb fileusrsharechromiumlinux-stablechromium-browserchromium-browser-stable.deb.Chromium.
The Chromium browser works fine in Chrome, but you need to be running a fork of Chromium with Ubuntu Linux.
