Shell layer

System stack

Linux without a shell access is like a Mac without a mouse. But Linux power users get more done precisely because there is no mouse. Small programs that do one thing well is a design philosophy that epitomizes the Linux world; getting comfortable with which command is the right one for the job, is half the struggle; getting up to speed with actually using those commands to improve your daily productivity is the other half—just what do all those switches really do?

Shell commands fall into several broad categories: directories, files, discovery, file systems, security, installation, networking, logging, administration, and compression. Here are some commonly used commands:
