comment How can I create a shell script shortcut?
@bytecode77 actually you cant. the alias is the way to "rename" it, with some caveats. why the name change needed? you could have a local shell script in your PATH that is names application i do this all the time, for specific reasons

@bytecode77 if you're symlinking to /bin, you're almost surely Doing It Wrong. Edit the shell startup file and add to PATH

comment How can I create a shell script shortcut?
@bytecode77 1) to make this "permannt" you need to put this in the shell startup file, eg $HOME/.bashrc or the like 2) An alias is a text substitution, it can do subtly different things than a normal invocation.

comment Need to create .tgz file in Windows
What he/she/ultrasawblade said. tar.gz is .tgz. Create your tar.gz and rename. Unless .tgz is TRULY something else entirely, then you're on your own because we'd have no idea what it is.

comment How can I make chown work recursively?
@gwideman I know this is old... But yes, of course -R does recursive. The OP just had an issue with a very specific type of recursion, an extension and "file type is file" filtered one

I use rdesktop for RDP. seems to be in a lot of Linux Distros. If you're looking at commercial, there's also Citrix.
