Jeffery Snover said to request it here so here I am :D
Here is a description of what they do -- http://www.gnu.org/software/bash/manual/bashref.html#Lists
An AND list has the form
command1 && command2
command2 is executed if, and only if, command1 returns an exit status of zero.
An OR list has the form
command1 || command2
command2 is executed if, and only if, command1 returns a non-zero exit status.

It's surely an overisght since I used this simple one line shorthand alternative to an if clause all the time in CMD scripts.

They are both in command prompt (cmd.exe), as well. Great shorthand I wish PowerShell had.
