This linux command line is hard!?!

Someone just pinged me with the regular beginner fears of working in a linux environment, especially the command line.    Luckily I found a nice site that gives a good set of introductory command line commands and arguments :

A few of my personal tips :

1) Use the man pages!    IE: ‘man rm’ will show you all about the rm command and how to operate it.

2) Note everything is not in the path, especially the current directory.    If a command will not run, try doing a ./<command> rather than just <command> if it is in the current directory.

3) / Unix   \ Windows.     The path separators are different.. so if your a windows command line guy.. this will take a bit of getting used to.
