Looking for some cool Linux wallpapers to download? What could be cooler for a Linux user than command line? How about using desktop backgrounds that also double up as cheat sheets? After all, Linux command cheat sheets often come in handy.
If you ask me, I am a fan of cheat sheets, but not as wallpapers. I do create cheat sheets or better to call it as quick reference guides, whenever I start working on something unfamiliar. In an earlier article, I did provide a Vi cheat sheet download. I had created it long back when I started working on Vi.
But cheat sheets as wallpaper!! Hmm! Honestly, I don’t even see enough of my desktop these days. But cheat sheets wallpaper could come handy. Specially if you have a desktop PC and your desktop is visible most of the time. It is like posting those periodic table charts or maps on the wall, for quick reference and for memorizing them.
