What else can we do with a Linux VM?

Now that we've installed Linux, what do we do with it?

Well, the obvious answer is install Tor browser. Yes, but that's in the next chapter. First, let's familiarize ourselves with Linux a bit.


Linux has the same basic functions as Windows—browsers, apps, OpenOffice for a productivity suite, a desktop interface, and so on, but there are so many more things you can do with Linux as an OS, from using it to run a smart home, a media center, and more.

You can completely customize Linux, by changing things such as the desktop environment, and can even customize the OS and the applications, if you're a coder, or if you develop your coding skills.

Programming is easier with Linux, with its built-in apps that can help you to read and write code. Accessing the log files of the OS, or anything you develop, is much easier with Linux, as well.

It is worth learning how the many protocols and services work, since they are so easy to install and configure in Linux.
