so i have a mac and i get around the terminal and i know most of the commands. ie open application.*

however im trying to figur out linux and im stuck
are there diffrent kinds of linux and therefore different commands.
how do i tell my pclinux to open a .torrent file. same as if i web and double clicked on it.
i know to edit its vi and to read its cat
my question is if im connected to the computer via ssh. and i want it to start download the file via bittorrent,
The open command opens a file (or a directory or URL), just as if you had
double-clicked the file’s icon. If no application name is specified, the
default application as determined via LaunchServices is used to open the
specified files.
[root@localhost Desktop]# eog jj.torrent
-bash: eog: command not found
[root@localhost Desktop]# open jj.torrent
-bash: open: command not found
