All commands, all operating systems

All possible commands on all (well, most, well Linux and others) possible Operating Systems. Excellent site; //

Here are all //linux commands, the downsite being, there is no list of all *nix commands. By nature you can add them yourself, by downloading and compiling or by creating your own.

Preparing today for Linux tomorrow


For someone new (and even not so new) to Linux, there are hundreds of questions, problems and concerns that arise during the learning process, especially for someone coming from the world of Microsoft Windows. Other Linux white papers deal with individual topics, often in lengthy fashion. This paper addresses a number of miscellaneous questions, both frequently- and rarely-asked, grouped by topic. The focus will be on helping Windows users make the transition to Linux, but those converting from other operating systems should find
useful information here as well.

Note: Because of the differences between Linux "distributions" from various vendors, some of the information below may apply to one distribution but not another. This will be pointed out where known; however, with all the available distributions it is impossible to identify all such situations here. If the problem is that a command or program described doesn’t exist in a given distribution, it is generally possible to download a copy of that program from a Web site, if needed. On the other hand, there may be a functionally similar utility already provided with
that distribution. To find out, consult the user’s manual or contact the distribution vendor. If all else fails, there is a list of Web sites in the Miscellaneous section, below, that may be of assistance.

For general terminology questions, please refer to the white paper entitled A Brief Linux Glossary for Windows Users, available from the same sources as this paper.
