Welcome to our series on the Linux Command Line! In this episode we start with a quick intro to the linux shell and run some very basic commands to get the ball rolling. The inspiration for this series comes from early masterminds like Linus Torvalds, Richard Stallman, Glenda Schroeder, Stephen Bourne, and Dennis Ritchie just to name a few. Immense appreciation for William Shotts, whose TLCL 5th internet edition laid the foundation for direction with this series.
