Computer Networking CertificateSAIT.ca - Continuing Education

In today's computer-driven world there has been an increase in the use of graphical interfaces in computer operating systems. This is because the average user finds the graphical interface easier to learn than the command line interface. While the graphical interface does make the work of the average user easier, it is often the least efficient way to administer the system. This course introduced students to the use of the command line in modern computer operating systems
