Getting started with the command line

The command line provides so much power.  We cover none of that power here, instead showing how to open the door—to open your terminal—on several operating systems.

GNU/Linux

In Ubuntu, use the Super key and start typing terminal.  As soon as you see the Terminal application show up and be selected, press Enter and you will have a terminal to type in.

If you're not using Ubuntu, something similar should still work, but if you're using

Mac OS X

Press Command + Spacebar to open Spotlight, and start typing terminal.  As soon as you see the Terminal application show up and be selected, press Enter and you will have a terminal to type in.

Windows

Press the Windows key + R, type cmd, and you will have a terminal emulator in Window's "Command Prompt" console.
