The Unix multi-user operating system is often used on servers, supercomputers and workstations because it is
both stable and flexible. Furthermore, users of PCs at universities and research institutes often choose for Linux
or Free BSD instead of MS-Windows because of the powerful programming development environment which is a standard
feature of on these popular Unix versions.
X-Windows is a hardware-independent Window system, developed especially for Unix at the end of the nineteen
eighties, with which graphic applications of one or more Unix systems can be used simultaneously on different
workstations, provided these are connected to one another via the Internet. Such workstations can be a Linux
workstation, any terminal or an MS-Windows PC on which an X-windows emulator is running, such as, for example, eXeed.
The power of Unix is still the tool concept. It opens the possibilityto
connect many small sophisticated programmes (tools) in order to generate new
powerfull commands. For this purpose the Unix user may choose from different work environments (so-called 'shells'),
for example the Bourne shell and the C-shell.
This course is meant for beginning Unix or Linux users who want to get acquainted to working with
Linux in a short time.
