An observation derived from blog statistics

I noticed something recently. In addition to the increased daily traffic to the blog but then something else caught my eye.

I’m seeing an increasing amount of Tux the Penguin as the Operating System for visitors to this blog.

I’m a Linux fan, and Tux is the avatar for Linux.

Come on, how can you not love an OS that provides bit for bit imaging in the dd tool, or the advanced manipulation you can do to a simple file listing using the awk and sed tools.

For example, say you’ve got a number of files that have a number, followed by an underscore and then say a host name.

ls|awk -F_ ‘{print $2}’|sort|uniq will give you a unique list of just one occurence for each host. Try that in Windows.

Then there’s the scripting in BASH and Perl. And the ability to install Apache, MysQL and PHP and have a full up LAMP server.

So welcome my fellow Linux users.
