I think Friendly Interactive Shell (a.k.a. fish) is a real good tool for newbies on the console at Linux, it has a lot of features, which you can by typing help.
Well first lets see how to install the application.
Fedora / Centos
sudo yum install fish
Debian / Ubuntu
sudo aptitude install fish
Once installed just enter
fish at any console and you will have the prompt again, but this time a more friendly prompt :).
As you can see in this screenshots:
here you can see that after entered
ls a and by pressing TAB you get as usually the options you have, but also an explanation of each of it.
On this other screenshot you can see that if you enter a command that does not exists it will remain red, and it will turn red, once you enter a well spelled command, so you have coloured syntax with fish, which is great for those starting with Linux operating system
Now, lets see some of features at fish help file
