Unix, Linux, and BSD Command Line Cross-Reference

[UPDATE] This title is no longer available.
Unix, Linux, and BSD systems share a number of similarities; they also have many distinct differences. This is especially true when working in the command line environment. It’s easy to get frustrated, confused, and possibly wreak havoc as you try to transition between the various types of Unix-like systems.

This guide is designed to highlight the differences between Unix, Linux, and BSD on the command line. It covers the most popular Unix-like platforms in use today. Operating systems covered in the book include AIX, Solaris, HP-UX, FreeBSD, OpenBSD, NetBSD, Mac OS X, RedHat/Fedora/CentOS, Debian/Ubuntu, Gentoo, and openSUSE.

About Fat Free Publishing


Fat Free Publishing was created with the goal of simplifying highly technical topics into an easily digestible reading format. We don’t write 600-page "bibles", nor do we write books for “dummies”. We believe that most technology students and professionals needs fall somewhere in the middle of the spectrum and our titles target that audience.

You will find that our books are simple, yet insightful. We achieve this by writing highly organized guides that avoid “bloat” and “fluff” (i.e. excessive wordiness). Each Fat Free Guide is designed to get you up to speed quickly, regardless of your knowledge of the topic.

Many readers have praised our unique format. We hope that you too will find our books helpful in expanding your technical knowledge. Thanks for reading.
