htop is tops

So if you have been doing your study on the command line you will have found that there are some "graphical" programs for the shell. One such program is "top" which is a dynamic process listing which tells you what is running and many other important bits of information in real time.

But its hard to use and even harder to customize. Instead try "htop" which is available in the repos

sudo apt-get install htop

Give it a whirl.
