In this walk through, we will be going through the Linux Fundamentals Part 1 from Tryhackme. This room will covers the basics of the command line and the essential commands, along with the working of the users and groups in Linux. On that note, let’s get started.

Task 3 – Interacting With Your First Linux Machine (In-Browser)
Task 4 – Running Your First few Commands
Question 1 – If we wanted to output the text “TryHackMe“, what would our command be?
Question 2 – What is the username of who you’re logged in as on your deployed Linux machine?
Task 5 – Interacting With the Filesystem!

Question 3 – Now if I wanted to add “tryhackme” to this file named “passwords” but also keep “passwords123”, what would my command be
