3. General Guidelines for FreeBSD
Introduction to FreeBSD

Unix is case-sensitive.

FreeBSD treats uppercase and lowercase versions of a word as different words. Operating systems such as DOS and Windows 95 don't care if you use capital letters in filenames, or passwords. To those operating systems, FileName, filename and FiLeNAmE are all the same. In FreeBSD this is NOT true.

Keep the Caps Lock key off, almost everything is in lowercase.

E-mail me if you have any suggestions for this section. I am looking for things that you would have liked to have known about FreeBSD when you first started.
