Although I've been mucking around for a long time, I'd say that I'm still very new to Linux.
However, I read recently that `ifconfig` was deprecated and `ip` was preferred

Also, I read about some other interesting commands that seem fundamental; `ss` and `mkfifo`

source: en.wikipedia.org directory:wiki file:Named_pipe
Do you think it would be good to include these commands, or are they beyond the scope of this tutorial / not good for other reasons?
PS: Sorry about the obnoxious URL specification, but I can't post links. Also, it would have been easier to read if I could have show `code` inline like on github (or at least in fixed width font), rather than forcing code to be a new block like this.
