I would add some things.

"top" or "htop" is something like a taskmanager
"kill" to kill a prozess
"killall" to kill all recources of a program

"| less" , u already explained the pipe but the less outputs everything with moving around with arrowkeys. If you dont have a graphical environment thats essential.

essential are also the package manager commands but they depend on the system...

But anyways, a really great guide for beginners, i can imagine that helps a lot...
