I guess my favorite would have to be

kill

hehe

im big on using everything on the command line. one thing I hate is when you come into a shop that's say, running webservers and the webservers have X installed and running on them without having a monitor or keyboard there too. idiotic waste of resources.

grep
svn
ping
dig
****sudo****
dmesg
tail
cat
etc, etc etc etc
