Many Linux programmers use the find command every single day of their career. But find gives a limited set of filesystem entries, and if you have to do a large set of find operations, it's not even very fast. So instead, I prefer to use the Rust fd command because it provides sensible defaults that work for most use cases.

Uhhh… why? Stuff like find, ls and cat aren’t supposed to be feature rich you know.

The title should have been “consider switching”. That said ripgrep (one example of a unix tool taken next-level) is literally a game changer.

I love how many rust tools are replacing these old C ones. exa for ls, ripgrep for grep, fd for find, dust for du, btm for htop…

Cheers for that list. Nice. I’d like to use exa, rg, fd more often, and install everywhere.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Linux is a family of open source Unix-like operating systems based on the Linux kernel, an operating system kernel first released on September 17, 1991 by Linus Torvalds. Linux is typically packaged in a Linux distribution (or distro for short).

Distributions include the Linux kernel and supporting system software and libraries, many of which are provided by the GNU Project. Many Linux distributions use the word “Linux” in their name, but the Free Software Foundation uses the name GNU/Linux to emphasize the importance of GNU software, causing some controversy.
