20 Useful Commands for Linux Newbies


Hi,

20 Useful Commands for Linux Newbies;
Quote:
So you are planning to switch from Windows to Linux, or have just switched to Linux? Oops!!! what I am asking! For what else reason would you have been here. From my past experience when I was new to Nux, commands and terminal really scared me, I was worried about the commands, as to what extent I have to remember and memorise them to get myself fully functional with Linux. No doubt online documentation, books, man pages and user community helped me a lot but I strongly believed that there should be an article with details of commands in easy to learn and understand language.These Motivated me to Master Linux and to make it easy-to-use. My this article is a step towards it.
Other useful links in Links for Helpful Linux articles & books

Hi,

The article could have more 'newbie' commands but a new user should learn to be investigative or explore by using references that are readily available. DuckDuckGo is my favorite search engine, plus you can use preferences to the other popular search engines without the worry of feeding data back.

Linux Man Pages Online is good reference for everyone. I still use 'man command' locally but if I need something quick then online is used.
