Join Kevin Skoglund for an in-depth discussion in this video Conclusion, part of Unix for Mac OS X Users.
I want to thank you for taking Unix for Mac OS X Users.…Over the course of this training title we've come a long way, from simply…changing directories in the command line all the way to power user techniques.…And don't worry if it takes a while for some of these commands become a routine.…Remember that you always have the man pages to remind you of the command syntax and…its available options.…I've been using Unix for 20 years and I still look up things all the time, and…those built-in man pages? They're also one of the best resources for you to…continue advancing your Unix skills.…One point that I hope you've picked up on while we we're learning is that…Unix is as much a part of your Mac as the Finder is. In fact Unix is what…makes the Finder possible.…
The Finder is a layer of convenience that sits on top of Unix.…So when you want convenience, use the Finder. When you want power, use Unix.…And when you can switch back and forth, and integrate both in your workflow then…you can work faster and get more power out of your computer.…
