I’m a bit confused about command-line usage.

I’m building a fairly complex system and use coffeescript, thus cake for builds. The tasks typically run unix commands like git, cat, ls, coffee, and naturally the node functions .. exec all over the place.

Does grunt replace the unix command line? I.e. if I convert to grunt, will it be a bit more portable because I’ll no longer need the unix/bash cli? .. would work equally on Mac (unix) and Windows (non-unix)
