I am writing "how-to"s for Plone CMS. Often "how-to"s begin with:

you need to know the basics of command line use..

Are there any really basic tutorials for:

  • Windows command line (cd, dir, where is that black prompt box icon)

  • Unix, Linux, Ubuntu (cd, ls, cp, etc.)

This would allow us to simply point to these tutorials when we list "basic command line knowledge" as prerequisite for the "how-to"
