Allow us to say that there are not as many applications for Linux compared to Microsoft Windows. Linux has a vast world of free and open-source applications (FOSS) that should get almost all of your work done, but if you're in a situation where you need to install and run a Windows program on your Linux system, don't worry, we've got it covered too!
In the Linux world, General Regular Expression Parser or grep is one of the most powerful commands used by every Linux administrator. Using it, you will be able to search files content and also perform a search within the command output: not just that, but a lot more, which we will be discussing in this tutorial.
Groups in Linux act as organization blocks that are used to sort and govern Linux user accounts. Groups can be used to set privileges on users, privileges like running applications, reading, or writing in directories.
There are several ways of checking your Linux system disk space. You could use a third-party app that shows the available disk space or do it by command-line way via the Linux Terminal.
VMware Workstation Player is one of the widely used virtualization desktop applications that you can use to create virtual machines. Unlike VirtualBox, it is not an open-source application, but it is mostly used in the work environment.
SED command helps you in performing various tasks on a text file such as updating, deleting, searching and inserting text. One of the strong features is it supports using regular expressions. Also, it lets you edit files without even opening the file.
