I'd guess you have a shell called bash that you call the terminal command. Most web references are geared toward someone who knows them. They are a reference for trained persons. For a new user they could be used but are not easy to study from.

8.10 is 6 years old. 8=2008. 10=October.

Get a more recent version!

The latest version of Ubuntu LTS is 14.04 (although 12.04 is still supported). You should upgrade immediately, as running an unsupported version leaves you open to numerous security holes!
