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.

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