    yeah there is a terminal window but the normal dos commands your thinking of will not work things like:

    Delete, undelete, ect but there are lots of tutorials here and else where that explain shell scripts and how to use them my fav is the BASH shell it is easier to use.

    Now there on your task bar at the bottom is a little icon that looks like a monitor click on that and you will be in a shell (command line), this can also be found by clicking on the star at the far left bottom corner of the taskbar on a pop up list marked "terminal".

    hope this helps, Enjoy your new OS !
