There are many ways to experience Linux in a Windows PC. You can install Cygwin, WSL, VirtualBox, etc. to have a Linux running within Windows. However, all of them requires some knowledge about Linux to begin with. It is possible for a newbie to start experiencing Linux in Windows without installing anything. Here is how.

Download a portable MobaXterm, run it and then start a local terminal within it. Ta-da, you can now experience the Linux command-line user interface in a program running in Windows. Zero installation is needed. You can even put it into a USB stick and run it in any Window PC with or without administrator privileges.
