The 10 Most Important Linux Commands

By Brad YaleSep 22, 2014

I get it. 

You're new to the Linux Command Line and truth be told, you might be a little intimidated. Coming from the comfort of a PC or Mac desktop, the Linux Command Line (CLI) looks nothing like what you normally use. The Linux CLI is dark, it's secretive, it's bare bones minimal and it's anything but friendly to newcomers. And yet, the Linux CLI is highly useful, essential to using your Linux box or virtual machine and can, if done right, provide you with more insight and practical use than the Windows or Mac desktop ever could.

For those reasons, from someone who was also once a Linux newb, I present the top ten Linux CLI commands you need to master for basic Linux CLI comprehension.

This list will not make your a Linux System Admin however it will get you on your way with your foot in the ocean.

1830 wasn't so long ago

By John TraenkenschuhSep 18, 2014

My family and I had a meal in Pigeon Forge, in an old mill building that's quite old, in an area settled in 1830.  Walking in with a MacBook Pro certainly seemed odd to some, but no one noticed my phone offering tethering rights.  And so it was that I posted a blog in a building that dated back 160 or more years ago.

I’m ready, but the United State’s infrastructure is not.

By John TraenkenschuhSep 17, 2014

I’m outside the Cades Cove visitor’s center, hearing acoustical instruments like bangos and hammered dulcimers play.  I have my MacBook Pro, alive—charged and ready.  My phone is charged and ready and has a tethering plan, just begging to be used.

I am signal-less.

How Long?

By John TraenkenschuhJul 29, 2014

Traenk kept his Windows system from the Internet, from even starting, for some 45 days.  A lot can de-evolve in 45 days...  Honestly, how long does it take before your system becomes very vulnerable and how long must we wait for new Windows components?  Will Windows 9 fix the issues?
