Linux vs Raspbian: What are the differences?

Developers describe Linux as "A family of free and open source software operating systems based on the Linux kernel". A clone of the operating system Unix, written from scratch by Linus Torvalds with assistance from a loosely-knit team of hackers across the Net. It aims towards POSIX and Single UNIX Specification compliance. On the other hand, Raspbian is detailed as "A free operating system based on Debian". It is optimized for the Raspberry Pi hardware. It provides more than a pure OS: it comes with over 35,000 packages, pre-compiled software bundled in a nice format for easy installation on your Raspberry Pi.

Linux and Raspbian belong to "Operating Systems" category of the tech stack.

Broadsheet, Deliveroo, and Rightech IoT Cloud are some of the popular companies that use Linux, whereas Raspbian is used by 3DRacers, Robotical Ltd, and IPF. Linux has a broader approval, being mentioned in 38 company stacks & 192 developers stacks; compared to Raspbian, which is listed in 3 company stacks and 10 developer stacks.

Netdata introduces Linux eBPF (Extended Berkeley Packet Filter) monitoring. With this enabled, monitor real-time metrics of Linux kernel functions and actions from the very same monitoring and troubleshooting dashboard used for watching entire systems, or even entire infrastructures.

This collector uses eBPF to monitor system calls inside your operating system’s kernel. For now, the main goal of this plugin is to monitor IO and process management on the host where it is running.

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
