How about nipl. Check www.nipl.net
They have really liberal policies. And some really nice people looking after it.
Some more info here - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shell_account
Is he looking for a specific kind of *nix?

why not install linux on your own system to try it out? isn't that the best way to go around?
alternatively, i am not really sure about this one, perhaps you can try something like mingw under windows if you are a windows user.

you could also try cygwin which allows you to have unix utilities on a windows platform

you can get it here http://www.cygwin.com/

if you read the first web page it gives a pretty good synopsis of what it is and what it isn΄t

Yes, cygwin is nice and takes just ten minutes to install - directly from internet.
You can easy choose what to include in your setup, so if you want only practice with the shell you can leave selected only basic things and keep a lean environment (about.. 50Mb.. if I remember).
But of course it also offers an extra large number of popular linux beautiful programs (sed.. mc.. octave gnuplot..) , so you can try them quickly, like them and finally think that linux is good for you! Smile

nipl.net has been shutdown now, atleast temporarily. Another good one seems to be http://www.learningshells.com/
They have some nice features for learning and also they have really good hardware.
Look here at the features - http://www.learningshells.com/features/features.htm
definitely nice for someone who just wants to have a shell account to learn *nix on it.
