Out of the hundreds of possible Linux commands you could learn, here are the ten basic ones you really need to know.

Whether you're a Windows system administrator looking to expand your skills into Linux, a fresh convert to Linux, or someone who's looking to find a job in IT, this introduction to some common Linux commands is for you. These 10 commands are the ones that Linux system administrators use frequently—in fact, they use at least eight of them on a daily basis. And no matter how long you use Linux, you'll always use these commands. Some of you MS-DOS users will recognize a few of these and, not surprisingly, they have the same function in both operating systems.

  • ls lists directory contents
  • man displays manual pages
  • cat concatenates files
  • touch changes file timestamps
  • pwd prints the working directory
  • cd changes directory
  • rm removes files and directories
  • cp copies files and directories
  • mkdir makes directories
  • ps lists the current running processes
