Windows is quite everywhere in consumer applications. But Linux is the way to get many jobs because it is open to learn and it is heavily used in development, production etc.

I have found few places where you get an online Linux terminal to learn basics. Some even have ROOT access!

Yes, there are some Linux terminals available online which will be helpful for you to learn Linux on the go.

But keep in mind that these Online Linux terminals may only be helpful for learning purpose and they may not serve you better than that!

Let’s see some of the online Linux shells:

Online Linux Terminal to Learn Linux

Out of the above, linuxzoo provides a fully fledged CentOS 7 to work with and various interfaces like: ssh, telnet, VNC to access to the newly created VM. Here I have wrote an article on how to learn Linux with an Online Linux OS without having a real Linux PC at home.

Bellard’s jslinux terminal is also a fully fledged VM but you get only command line access to the Linux machine. And yes it’s having ROOT access.

Final words on Online Linux Terminals

– Linux terminals available online are easy to work. The only downside is you cannot access or get much information from the core system. Most of them would have restrictions to do so!
– The best part is that you will execute any command fearlessly which you may not do on your own PC, otherwise.
– With those online terminals, you can do programming on the go, wherever you want and whenever you want, with an internet connection of course.
– The biggest problem with online Linux shell is that you cannot store any files on those online machines. Except that on the linuxzoo machine which will still survive for few days. You have almost 13 days (time till the account expires) to copy files using SSH or SCP or tftp or any other means.

Finally it’s upto you how you want to use these online Linux terminal available from various sources. If you have anything to say on this topic or have any concerns while accessing any of those online Linux terminals, then just login to place a comment or query below.
