I started to use the terminal more and more lately. As for the guy, coming from Mac/Windows OS, it was the scariest thing ever.

The thing is, the more I use it on Linux the more I need it on Mac/Windows. It became a daily tool for me. On the macOS, on the other hand, the terminal is quite similar, but Windows PowerShell it's a little bit shit, to be honest. Anyway, this stuff is about Linux, so here we go.
