Site News: LinuxCommand.org Turns 10!

LinuxCommand.org is 10 years old!  The site first went live in March 2000.  Since then I've had about 3.2 million visitors (at least according to the statistics at SourceForge where I'm hosted), received many kind emails from my readers, written a book, distributed a lot of scripts, and been mirrored all around the world.

In the coming year, I hope to update the tutorials on the site.  Much of the text, believe it or not, dates back to the beginning of the site, another testament to the enduring value of learning the command line.  But even so, the tutorials are getting a little outdated and my own knowledge has grown considerably over the last ten years as well.

As you may have noticed, this blog has been pretty busy and I have settled into a routine of posting twice a week (on Tuesdays and Thursdays) and I have many more topics in mind to cover.  And there is always the book to improve.  I've even toyed with writing another one...

Anyway, I want to thank everyone for their kind words of encouragement and support.  I know I don't always respond to each email that I receive, but I do try.  Speaking of support, you can support the work here at LinuxCommand.org by purchasing your very own printed copy of my book.  I've donated money to a number of free and open source software projects over the years and continue to "pay for my software" by producing this site and performing software testing on projects that interest me.

Thanks to everyone for ten great years!
