Still not convinced? Take a look at what users are saying:
"This app was such a great surprise. I bought it thinking it was a linux/unix shell reference (which it is) but it actually is also a user-friendly guide to a lot of Linux theory stuff. Oh and best part is that the actual reference data is included in the app (no using the Internet for each time you look up a command; it's all there) really fast load times! Totally worth the $.99" - Blake Turner
"Lays out information in a clear and concise manner. Has a couple tricks that some advanced users might not know. Worth the buck." - Harrison Dickson
"Very clear to read and easy to search plus a huge database of commands and tips" - Zabadda
"Finally a Linux reference with more than just a few commands. Thanks Paul!" - Brian Collamer

What's New in Version 1.1

great reference guide
I purchased this app for my Linux class and it has been a lifesaver. the gui for the program is organized and is easy to transition through all the information. and all the information under the command section is in-depth and sometimes gives me more info than my college book.
I am a beginner when it comes to Linux and this guide has been a huge help in understanding how to use several new commands.
Also, I love that I will never have to run a 'man' command again since the manuals are provided for all the commands.
Great explanations of many cool ways to use different commands and they are all categorized for easy finding.
Great reference on the go
I would have liked to have this app years ago when I was on the road and did not have an internet connection. I didn't have a Linux manual with me either. Some Linux distros do not have man pages. This app is very convenient and quick. And several excellent tips to do useful things too!
