Command Line TV is a video podcast to help you
learn and master the Unix shell. Informally, ‘Unix’ refers to a
family of
operating systems that includes GNU/Linux, Mac OS X, and FreeBSD. Operating
a computer via the command line gives you tremendous power and flexibility,
but it’s not easy to learn. We’re here to help! We start from the
beginning, but also try to include some tips suitable for intermediate
users. Each video is about 20 minutes long, and we aim to release a new
episode every week or so.

    ‘apt’ system on Ubuntu GNU/Linux. On other systems, you might use Yum
    (RedHat/Fedora), Pacman (Arch), or Homebrew (Mac). This page shows a comparison
    of commands for several Linux packaging systems:
