Hello there, I will be contributing to the Ubuntu Tamil Doc Team!
I just did a cleanup.
There was an old page called BasicCommands.
Someone created a new page called HowToUseTheTerminal, and whoever created BasicCommands thought the information was redundant and should be merged. Of course, since BasicCommands is a subset of HowToUseTheTerminal (the commands go in the terminal, not vice versa), it would make sense to put stuff in the latter page.
But HowToUseTheTerminal is also an annoying URL to type (see how many times you have to press the Shift key).
So I merged them and moved them to a new page: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UsingTheTerminal
Hope no one complains.
I didn't know that! That's really helpful.Change the text
