Hi everyone i was wondering if there is some commands for terminal that won't mess up my computer?  I also want to ask if there is an easy or a simple way for beginers with no programming experience to learn terminal well.

    You might try Mac OS X Lion for Dummies, or if you want to get more advanced, UNIX for Dummies.


    For experimenting, create a Standard user account that you use only for this.  That will protect the system itself and your regular account if you do make a mistake.
