I'm just wondering what this all means haha.
Any help is much appreciated.
It's the format string for your prompt
\u = user
\h = hostname
\W = working directory
If your user is BigBack, your host is "mycomputer", and your working directory is /etc, that format string would give you a command prompt that looks like:
[BigBack @mycomputer /etc]$
