Only the ones that are specific to the distros.

Greater than 98% of the generic commands work on all distrobutions. There are commands that are distro specific, like apt-get for debian, but people have ported most of those distro-specific commands to other distros as well. You still find commands that only work on one distro or group of distros, but most of the shell commands work across the boards, which is why they are a much better thing for people to learn than how to do things in Gnome/KDE/Fluxbox/Icewm etc.

Peace,
JimBass

Some distros do use alias' to modify commands, such as adding interactive (-i) to cp/rm/mv etc.

You can try http://www.linux.org/lessons/ for some of the more commonly used commands, also there is other useful stuff here. I learned quite a bit from here, I hope this is the kind of thing you meant.

My favorite command site is http://linuxcommand.org/

As to books, I don't know why we continue to chop down trees to get paper, when anything can be converted to a digital format.

Come on Tink, high tech it! Feed a flatscreen in the bathroom from the video out, set xorg to have a seperate video feed for that, and just have it run a simple apache cgi thingie where it shows you one page of a book for about 60 seconds, then refreshes to the next page!

Maybe the super high tech could add one of those devices for the disabled, where you can control the mouse with your eyes. At first I thought of wireless USB remote controls to turn the pages, then thought better of having anything that requires touching in the bathroom! With that you wouldn't need the automatically refreshing apache, just regular. I like it. I claim intellectual property rights, although in good faith with your contribution, I'll cut it 3 ways between you, me, and lq.org.

Peace,
JimBass
