Does Macbook carried a Command Prompt like a normal PC?
You can use the Terminal for Unix commands
Woof, Woof - Dawg
OSX runs on UNIX, the command line interface is Terminal
Nope. Macs do it with pizzazz!
The Mac is a normal PC , just not the most common type.
I love screenshots. Here is the terminal which is UNIX for Command Prompt. As an interesting tidbit. Theres a tradition associated with Unix or Unix-like systems have a X in them. Which is why linux is linux and why Mac OS X(Based on a variant of BSD Unix) has a X at the end but is pronounced Mac OS Ten.
find it quickly in spotlight - enter Terminal and click on the first item in the search results.
Well... I think we are forgetting...
cmd.exe is MS-DOS and Terminal.app is Unix, so...
it won't do you any good unless you know how to operate a Unix command line. Period. End of discussion. Over. Done. FIN. GO AWAY ALREADY!
What? that is not generally true at all.....
FreeBSD- A unix operating system, no X (Unless you want to call it Free BSD Unix)
OSX is called OSX because it is the 10th version of the operating system, the X is a roman numeral for 10.
Linux... This is arguable. There are a few different meaning to the name linux.
