    Hey,
    I was just wondering if anyone knew of any good UNIX-ed oriented sites. I have played around with the Terminal in OSX but don't know too much about commands, etc.

    Thanks

    This might be a good place to start:

    http://www.macdevcenter.com/pub/a/mac/2002/12/06/terminal_osx.html

    And that site in general... has an OS X focus... so might make it easier.

    Go to your public library and grab a UNIX book. Most of the stuff you will learn about shells, commands, etc, will apply to OS X. Most but not ALL, ok?

    Books are the best way in my opinion, cause you read it, then turn around and try it out ... "cool!" and you go on to the next command! :D

    Learning Unix for Mac OS X
    http://www.oreilly.com/catalog/lunixmacosx2/

    Get it.

    Note to unix people, you will learn very little new if you already have Unix experience. It is a good read, and I did pick up some new stuff reading it. For Unix newbies, it would be a great jumping off point. Plus it is pretty cheap.
