Here’s my kind of computer article I found when typing in the words “Learning Unix” into Google.
It doesn’t contain any specific information about the unix environment, but instead just gives comforting words to those — like me — trying to get more out of it.
Unix as acquired a reputation as something that can only be used by people who learned 14 programming languages by the age of ten and build all their home machines from scratch because it’s fun. This is not true. If it did my artsy-fartsy background would have prevented me from ever touching the keyboard. There are two basic premises that would’ve saved me a lot of angst in learning Unix. First, it does not make sense. Period. None.
