This is true for basic commands, such as cp or ls, but not necessarily for more exotic ones. Debian, for example, has some arcana all its own, largely to do with the .deb package format and apt-get but also things like installation and hardware detection.

That's one of the joys of being a Debian user - you're not only more of an illuminati than non-Linux users, but also more of one than most Linux users .

But other distributions have their own quirks, although probably not as many.

From Ushant to Scilly, 'tis thirty-five leagues."
