I've noticed over the past week or two, a few of my friends have posted on social media sites regarding issues they're having with the operating system they're currently using. I'm sure when I detail what the problems are, it'll follow that the OS in question is obvious without me naming and shaming it. I thought I'd share in a bit of detail how I think migrating to Linux* might help.

Firstly, familiarity and fitting in with existing working practices. A lot has been said over...

As much as I love a good book, the internet has become a very popular medium of transporting information. There are 'illions of blogs, personal sites, and vlogs that let people express themselves in ways that were rare novelties just 10 years ago.

man page keyboard shortcuts

Posted 02-24-2013 at 08:30 AM by sag47

Here's a short list of keyboard shortcuts for reading man pages that I've learned by usage. I've not found a good place shortcuts are documented; man page or otherwise.

Code:
man bash
