Linux, FreeBSD, and Windows common commands

I use Linux Mint 16, Nas4Free (freebsd), pfsense, Ubuntu Server, and Windows 7. I have a hard time remembering every command for each os. Fortunately most freebsd and linux commands are the same but not all.  So I slowly add to this table over time.  * shows its not exact match but close enough.

Linux

FreeBSD

Windows
