Where is Cloud9's "Create Workspace" option?


When I open the Cloud9 service I see a “Create Environment” option but not a “Create Workspace” option.

I would like to create a Cloud9 workspace in which I can practice with Ubuntu, even though my laptop is Windows 7.

How to I get to “Create Workspace” in the current version of Cloud9?

My Cloud9 “environment” is in EC2 and is running LINUX, was hoping for Ubuntu.


AWS Cloud9 uses the term “Environment” rather than “Workspace” as AWS already had a product called AWS WorkSpaces. EC2 Environments run Amazon Linux, which is based on RHEL rather than Ubuntu but does provide a similar Linux backend. If you’d like to use Ubuntu, you can spin up a separate EC2 instance running Ubuntu and connect AWS Cloud9 to it via SSH Environment.
