comment Where did the “wheel” group get its name?
Frankly this story seems more plausible to me than the "big wheel" theory. If I had to guess, "big wheel" might have been slang that was used by some of the early UNIX crowd, but probably as a consequence of the wheel group, not the cause thereof. But who knows?

comment Good website to link to for generic linux advocacy
Yeah, I'm afraid this really isn't what I had in mind; it wouldn't much different than linking to the Arch pages. It sounds like a great resource, and a great way to learn about linux, but I'm targetting a much wider, more casual, audience here.

comment Replacing multiple lines in sed or awk
f course, sed and awk can do this, but I'm having a little trouble understaning exactly what your question is. What exactly is causing you trouble? Inserting new lines? Replacing them?

comment Good website to link to for generic linux advocacy
I have nothing against FreeBSD, and other unix-like systems, etc. I just have almost no personal experience with them, and so it would be odd to advertise them. I'd be fine with a site that covered both linux and other open source unix-like operating systems at the same time, definitely, so long as it was beginner-friendly.

comment What are your favorite command line features or tricks?
Awesome. Just add -F to ls in the cd function and it's perfect (for me)!
