It’s easy to get frustrated, confused, and possibly wreak havoc as you try to transition between the various types of Unix-like systems.

This guide is designed to highlight the differences between Unix, Linux, and BSD on the command line. It covers the most popular Unix-like platforms in use today.

About Fat Free Publishing

I purchased a lot of computer books when I first entered the technology field. Most were excessively wordy and cumbersome. There seemed to be this misconception that computer books were required to be 500-page “bibles” in order to be considered good, and anything less was for “dummies”. I believed there was a better way, but when I couldn’t find it, I decided to create it.

The idea behind my “fat-free” guides is simple: better, faster, cheaper. There is a better way to cover technology topics faster and cheaper than the methods used in traditional computer books. I achieve this by avoiding the “fluff” that is so prevalent in most books. Fat Free Guides are simple, organized, and thorough guides sold at very reasonable prices. Each book is designed to get you up to speed quickly, regardless of your knowledge of the topic.

I hope you find my books helpful on your quest to expand your technical knowledge. Please send questions and comments to GrepNick@gmail.com. Thanks for reading.
