Feedback is requested and appreciated.

Good site. I did catch one small problem, that could cause some frustration. You said to do Adduser, and it (obviously) should be adduser. Not really a huge deal, but a good idea to tell people that linux is case sensitive. It's always the super simple things that cause the most problems.

Keep up the good work!

I corrected these two typos. Yes, I agree, syntax errors do create the biggest frustrations. Thanks for the input.
