from question "Has Ubuntu reached the point yet where it's user friendly for most users?"

Fuser -n

"One one ubuntu distro fuser -n tcp 3000 will report a process if i own the process yet on another linux distro i think centos it won t report the process even if i own it"

from question "What O/S do you prefer for web development, and why?"

Distribution far more

"Sometimes a linux distribution contains far more than an operating system but is informally referred to by a single name such as ubuntu and so the line between what the operating system is the linux kernel and standard libraries perhaps and the applications that merely ship with that operating system the gnome and kde environments on linux is pretty gray"

from question "What Does an OS Actually Do?"


"I don t know why arch linux is slower than ubuntu on your machine"

Things worse

"Also very particular that this should be done on centos or amazon linux which makes things worse for me as i have been on ubuntu for long"

Much easier
