The link is a link to Arch Linux. A default Arch Linux install comes
without a WM/DE and even without X, so it perhaps isn't the best distro
for a newbie.

[rocketmouse at archlinux ~]$ date -u +%V$(uname)|sha256sum|sed 's/\W//g'

Perhaps the output is useful to somebody who can't handle it.

The pitfall likely is
date [snip] //g'
               ^ since it's not easy to see in combination with the
                 quotation marks.
