Linux for hackers - Part I


Hackers & Linux share a very intimate relation. Linux offers hackers all the freedom they nee and hackers care only for that very thing!  You can do whatever you like with your system and that is the biggest factor where Linux wins over.  Achieving perfection, however, can be a daunting task given the enormity of this computer OS.
In this multi part series, I will be discussing what basic Linux utilities are needed on day to day basis. Also this will serve as a reference for me if I forget something ;)
One thing to note here is that this is not a “Linux for beginners” tutorial. This is “Linux for newbie hackers”

I have handpicked some of the most important things that one should must know. There is no order of any kind in these utilities.
