Continues from my last post: is a free Linux emulation site, it allows you to use distros like Ubuntu for free with root access and internet connection.

But how do we use it?

  1. Go to
  2. Find Ubuntu 19 and click 'run online'
  3. A new tab will open, please wait until a piece of red text shows reading something like 'OS ubuntu-19.10-desktop-amd64'
  4. Click 'start'

You repeat the steps for any distro on its site, FYI the root/user password is 123456 (says in banner on startup)

You can now use this to install many things, but to be honest- I would use fedora workstation

I would recommend using a cloud platform like OneDrive to get files, or FTP.
