The intended style is that of an "index" of popular or otherwise frequently-sought information. This page should contain no real "content", but rather short introductions/descriptions of a problem/application followed by a suitable wiki link for interested parties.

That said, please keep headings alphabetical.
*[[#Emacs shell]] should belong in [[Emacs]]

*[[#grep]], [[#ls]] and most of [[#Console improvements]] can go in a ''Basic Commands'' article.

I added most of this content (that I'm now asking to move) before realizing that the merger has more opportunities for improvement.

Page history and purpose

This page was constructed from information previously available in Post Installation Tips and Beginners' Guide Appendix. See Talk:Post Installation Tips#Duplication of effort (merge?) for details.

The intended style is that of an "index" of popular or otherwise frequently-sought information. This page should contain no real "content", but rather short introductions/descriptions of a problem/application followed by a suitable wiki link for interested parties.

That said, please keep headings alphabetical.
