Freshell.org looks like it gives you a free shell account on their server. As they say, they are a "public access unix system". So it isn't actually MS-commands you need to know, but linux/unix commands. What do you plan on using this account for?

It's kind of like this... Once you get in there, what are you going to do?

I had a freeshell account, but I let it lapse. I mean, I've got all of the Unix boxen I ever need, and I've got them set up for remote access. I've got NetBSD, FreeBSD, Linux, SCO Unixware, Solaris, I can take my pick.

Personally, my opinion is that unless you've got a better reason, just set yourself up a Linux box or something if you want to learn Unix like this. The most you'd ever learn from freeshell is how to use, but not administer Unix.
