Command Line Basics

Why Learn it and NOT Use a GUI (Graphical User Interface)

For server administration in an enterprise environment the most important thing to have is predictability and stability.

The traditional Linux CLI (Command Line Interface) also known hence forth as terminal achieves this by,

  1. Predictability - Being repeatable (you can copy and paste) with a history of what occured
  2. Stability - Most servers have no GUI resulting in less processes to crash, less to patch and low resources
