Do you think every computer engineer and computer science student should know how to use Linux? Why?

Ngcc Softtech

Hello Shobhitha :-). Not Linux specifically, but Unix systems in general, sure. They are important in many fields. If you can’t find your way around Unix systems you shut yourself out of almost all server side work (although a little is done of MS OSes, and a small buy valuable part on older mainframe Ones). So computer engineers absolutely should. Some people think CS should stick to the more theoretical “sciency” parts of computers. If you think CS should teach noting practical, then you can leave out Unix in general. Personally I think some practical things should be taught, plus as Linux/FreeBSD/NetBSD are all Open Source OSes they could make great platforms for studying all kind of things. VM page replacement algorithms and disk storage systems and such. So they make great experimentation platforms. As a practical matter if your University skimped, go pick it up. Do some command line work. It is enlightening. Do some server work, it too is mind expanding. Go mess with the VM subsystem it is…um… frustrating and fraught with danger. Also enlightening though. Thanking You, Ngcc Software Technologies.

Have you mastered Linux if you don't need or want a desktop environment?

Hello Manoj :-). I'm no master, but in my experience it largely depends on what you're doing. If you're looking to do a lot of web browsing, then you're probably going to want a desktop environment, unless you like text browsers like Lynx and Elinks. If you're doing some Python programming, fire up Vim or your other favorite text editor and have at it! What, you need to google something? Hope you like those text browsers. If you're creating a server, then there's no need for such a CPU hog as a desktop environment. A simple SSH server will be plenty, as hopefully you weren't intending to only physically access the server! If you're experimenting with a new distribution from a liveCD, but just want to use the command line, sure! Go ahead, but if you wanted to google the features it had, back to those text browsers! (I hear SurfRaw is very helpful). So technically yes, the master of the Linux desktop would be someone who doesn't use a desktop environment at all, and already knows everything there is to know about whatever they're trying to do, just like any good omniscient master should. Then we have those people who only use a window manager like Open Box etc etc. Thanking You, Ngcc Software Technologies.
