Mint is build based on Unix-like processes, inter-processes communications and data structure. So Mint understands the Unix environment by default.
To complete the Unix-like environment in Mint, a Unix file/folder structure is required and the use of programs ported from Unix. Programs ported from Unix can be easily download and installed. So this tuitorial concern is to setup the very first Unix file/folder structure and some programs used in Unix such as the list command and the all-important Unix Shell (command shell).
