The similarities between DOS and Linux

If you are fond of the command line, which I am sure most any reader of this community is, you should try linux. It is command line driven just the same. If you don't believe me, check out a sampling of the commands. (The first is DOS, the second is Linux)

cd, cd
mkdir, mkdir
cd\, cd ~
dir, ls
copy, cp
move, mv
del, rm
find, find

I started using Linux before the 1.0 kernel (Slackware, baby!) when the GUI was a new phenomenon. There is a lot of crossover, even these days. If you like DOS, you may just love Linux.
