    It seems to me the author thinks that the very basic and old fashioned DOS command interpreter is the pinnacle of command lines! When I don’t remember an exact command I just hit tab and it lists completions. If I don’t know the options I press ALT-F2 man commandname ENTER and it gives me a prettily formatted help file. And no I don’t use DOS obviously! Its like someone writing about something being a bit like a bicycle when he only has experience of a kids scooter.

    Nice post. However, I seeing ‘sudo ** -f /’ actually written out feels like seeing a swear word. It’s got such horrifying powers that I don’t even like to mention it in front of the young ones.
