So, you’ll sometimes see the command set off on its own line, using a monospace font, like this: man ls or cp /var/log/mail maillog This convention is also used for excerpts from files, or for complete files, as well as for shell scripts and other programming examples.

FreeBSD runs on Intel or Intel-compatible processors as well as the DEC Alpha platform. Solaris In contrast to both Linux and FreeBSD, Solaris is a fully proprietary system. It is produced by Sun Microsystems and was originally developed for use on Sun’s Sparc line of processors. As Intel’s x86 chips became more popular for use on higher-end systems (instead of running solely on consumer-level computers), Sun ported Solaris to that platform, as well. While Sun does provide downloads of Solaris, the software license limits use of the software to personal use, and redistribution is not permitted.
