Linux vs Windows: What are the differences?

Linux: 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; Windows: A group of several graphical operating system families, all of which are developed by Microsoft. A series of personal computer operating systems produced by Microsoft as part of its Windows NT family of operating systems.

Linux and Windows 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 Windows is used by Ericsson, iPhady, and House Extension Designs. Linux has a broader approval, being mentioned in 25 company stacks & 126 developers stacks; compared to Windows, which is listed in 10 company stacks and 33 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
