Centos vs macOS: What are the differences?

Centos: The Community ENTerprise Operating System. The CentOS Project is a community-driven free software effort focused on delivering a robust open source ecosystem. For users, we offer a consistent manageable platform that suits a wide variety of deployments. For open source communities, we offer a solid, predictable base to build upon, along with extensive resources to build, test, release, and maintain their code; macOS: The primary operating system for Apple's Mac family of computers. Desktop, laptop and home computers, and by web usage, it is the second most widely used desktop OS, after Microsoft Windows.

Centos and macOS can be categorized as "Operating Systems" tools.

According to the StackShare community, Centos has a broader approval, being mentioned in 352 company stacks & 304 developers stacks; compared to macOS, which is listed in 8 company stacks and 24 developer stacks.

CentOS

Global familiarity, free, widely used, and as a debian distro feels more comfortable when rapidly switching between local macOS and remote command lines.

CentOS does boast quite a few security/stability improvements, however as a RHEL-based distro, differs quite significantly in the command line and suffers from slightly less frequent package updates. (Could be a good or bad thing depending on your use-case and if it is public facing)

If you have a file (demo.txt) that has 3 columns:

Column-1    Column-2    Column-3
Row-1a      Row-2a      Row-3a         
Row-1b      Row-2b      Row-3b
Row-1c      Row-2c      Row-3c
Row-1d      Row-2d      Row-3d
Row-1e      Row-2e      Row-3e

and you want to only view the first column of the file in your CLI, run the following:

awk {'print $1'} demo.txt

Column-1
Row-1a
Row-1b
Row-1c
Row-1d
Row-1e

If you want to print the second column of demo.txt, just replace $1 with $2
