Onworks, how to run Ubuntu online

Continues from my last post:


Onworks.net 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 https://onworks.net
  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.
