  • This is Linux for those of us who don’t mind typing. All Linux users and administrators tend to like the flexibility and speed of Linux administration from the command line in byte–sized chunks, instead of fairly standard graphical user interfaces.

Reviews

“Beginning the Linux Command Line gives the reader practical information without overwhelming with detail, yet still fills in background where context is necessary for real understanding. The final chapter, on shell scripting, is a good example of the author’s well-paced tutorial approach, and leaves the reader prepared for tackling many admin tasks.” (The MagPi, Issue 45, May, 2016)
