Learning Linux?

#1
I try to use and learn Linux command interface. I keep forgetting the command What are you top ten Linux Command do you use the most? What are your top ten Linux command? How do remember the command?

After having to google about 6 or 7 times I finally actually remember it. It varies between distros, but I usually end up using apt-get, chmod, and sudo the most as with almost all linux users Tongue

ah the linux command line, I remember when I was starting out.

my top 3 are in order.

Apt-get (Application get/acquire/download.)
Telnet (for accessing BBS servers and IRC chatrooms)
and the various navigational commands.

also grep if you know how to use it, so much power 0_o, you can grep anything and find stuff very easily.

as for remembering it... I keep a pocket reference book I picked up which goes into detail on useful linux command line stuff, even keep a copy at work since we're slowing moving from windows to linux.

I wish we would move to Linux. Too much money invested into Microsoft to make the switch. It's sad.  Undecided

guardian: IBM has been invested in linux since at least 2001, but due to user complaints they've stuck with windows... still it's nice that the account I'm on is making the switch lol, even if I have to educate and answer a lot of questions as one of the resident linux guru's Cool

I would bet that's solely on users not willing to learn something new. Microsoft has to take baby-step changes or people freak out. Linux is a whole new world to most people.

right? Big Grin this is why I keep my pocket book of linux commands, it's basically a truncated man file rofl. but so useful Cool

I will give it to Microsoft, their Powershell help system is very complex and you can get virtually all commands straight from the command line itself. One thing Linux could probably implement. 

Additionally, you can implement even more commands than are by default depending on the applications installed.

guardian: that's already in linux though?

the man command and help commands are very useful lol.

man grep will tell you everything you need to know about grep... there are some experimental command line add ons being worked on though that use machine learning to guess and finish commands, sorta like google search, but that's not fully implemented yet.

Yes, BUT, they're not as simple to find in Linux as they are in Powershell. I mean, in Powershell, it will give you options as you type. Guess a letter and it gives you a list to choose from. It's VERY user friendly, which is just making Windows users more inclined to stick with it.

If you tell me Linux does that, please tell me what you did to get it to work. Tongue

guardian: yeah that sounds similar to some of the experimental stuff that's being worked on, it's not in the official builds yet but you can get modules for bash shell that does that.

it's not perfect yet, it's why I still keep my booklet around but that sounds super handy in powershell... now if only that worked in regular command line or freedos Big Grin
