Topic: Getting around in UNiX

   The Unix philosophy has revolutionized user interaction with
computers by providing a comprehensive and standardized system view
accompanied by a full complement of system utilities.  This collection
of standard programs provides powerful tools for efficiently searching,
viewing, and manipulating a user's data.  However, in spite of the
utility and flexibility of these tools, getting acquainted with them can
often be a confusing and frustrating experience for new users.
   Through hands-on experience, attendees at this workshop will
gain a solid understanding of how to navigate the Unix shell and
discover why users are drawn to the command line despite the temptation
of modern graphical interfaces.
