Let's see what your top 10 mostly used commands are?

My "squeeze" is pretty fresh on this machine:
Code:
      4 history
      3 su
      2 df
      2 cd
      1 which
      1 /usr/sbin/plymouth-set-default-theme
      1 uptime
      1 uname
      1 top
      1 lspci

For root:
Code:
     91 vi
     77 cd
     40 ll
     26 /home/c/d/Projects/MyBackup.sh/0.4/opt/MyBackup.sh
     25 lrt
     21 vl
     13 bu
     12 rm
     11 grep
     11 <*>
ll is an alias for ls -l, lrt is an alias for ls -lrt, bu is an alias to run a script to make a backup copy of a file, vl is an alias to cd to /var/log and run lrt. As for <*> ???

For personal user:
Code:
     71 man
     33 cd
     29 vi
     27 echo
     22 lrt
     21 ./get_trap_info.sh
     15 cut
     14 grep
     14 cp
     12 make
21 occurrences of ./get_trap_info.sh comes from debugging a script

You can kind of tell what Linux I'm using based on my list (just look at Command #3 that weighs in at 19 uses).

Got it! I accidentally pasted text from a kernel menuconfig screen at the command line. Good job it doesn't include rm -fr !

Here's my output (from a Debian Sid machine set up to use sudo):

Code:
    103 sudo
     52 ls
     51 aptitude
     33 cd
     31 man
     24 exit
     18 echo
     16 sh
     13 less
     13 killall
And this is the output from the root terminal:

Code:
     31 aptitude
     19 exit
     16 dpkg
     16 cd
     13 ls
     11 nano
      6 cp
      5 reboot
      5 less
      4 update-grub

I would like to thank you all for your posts. I believe we could all learn something from this thread, I'm just sorry that there isn't more outputs.

I didn't post as root, but it's still pretty new history:
Code:
      8 exit
      6 cat
      4 aptitude
      2 wget
      2 reboot
      1 top
      1 lspci
      1 logout
      1 history
      1 fdisk

Non root:
Code:
slackuser@slacker:~$ history |tr '\011' ' ' |tr -s " "| cut -d' ' -f3 |sort |uniq -c |sort -nbr |head -n10
    171 cd
     79 ls
     39 rm
     26 pico
     24 xmms
     22 du
     13 clear
     12 su
     12 mv
     11 exit
slackuser@slacker:~$
For root:
Code:
root@slacker:/home/slackuser# history |tr '\011' ' ' |tr -s " "| cut -d' ' -f3 |sort |uniq -c |sort -nbr |head -n10
     89 exit
     87 cd
     74 ls
     40 mount
     32 pico
     26 umount
     17 upgradepkg
     15 rm
     11 sh
     10 du
root@slacker:/home/slackuser#
I'm a little surprised that ldconfig isn't there, because that is what is followed after upgradepkg, ah well.
