Command Line from Windows


#1

Hello Everyone.
I have started with the command line basics. However, I see it is more for Linux/Mac, and not for windows.
Should I be thinking of taking the course from a Linux or Max machine ? Is is equally effective on Windows ?
I see that a post shared a link for windows commands. It would be great if more experienced users could validate this.

Hi @cnbhomia

Windows does not work well with Rails which we use for our backend course so we can’t officially support it because we would get so many requests for help that it would take up all our time and we wouldn’t be able to take the time to work on the course itself.

Would you recommend I install Linux and start from there ?

Hello @cnbhomia

If you want to practice linux command line on windows;
you can try with cygwin.
It provides tools which provide functionality similar to a linux distributions.
