This book does not try to cover everything under the sun related to Linux and its commands. It focuses on the small core commands that you will use the 80% or 90% of the time, trying to simplify the usage of the more complex ones. All those commands work on Linux, macOS, WSL, and anywhere you have a UNIX environment. The author hopes the contents of this book will help you achieve what you want: get comfortable with Linux.
