Linux Essentials for Windows Administrators – Part 2

In Part 1 of this series, you learned some Unix/Linux (*nix) basics covering general security, filesystem layout, comparable DOS commands, and directory structure. In Part 2, I take you deeper into the *nix filesystem, filesystem navigation, and file manipulation.

In the past few years in the *nix space, filesystems have gone through somewhat of a standardization or convergence. That’s a good thing for cross-platform system administrators who must work on a variety of systems without becoming an expert on every one. By convergence, I mean that there is more of a standard look and feel for *nix filesystems from one ???flavor??? to another.
