GNU, GPL, Open Source The HURD was meant to be the true kernel at the heart of the GNU operating system. The promise behind the HURD was revolutionary -- a set of daemons on top of a microkernel that was intended to surpass the performance of the monolithic kernels of traditional Unix systems and in doing so, give greater security, freedom and flexibility to the users -- but it has yet to come down to earth.

mkdir, top, tail, head, less, chmod, chown,awk, cut, w,xargs,tar, cat, ps, netstat, dc

amongst others.

One liners are cool too ( but, really only in perl. Ruby's not poetic enough for my tastes), but sometimes gnu tools with some bash glue is faster.

so i forgot mkdir and less, those are probably daily too. xargs is probably a few times a week, chmod/chown and tar, those are probably every few months for me. i had to man dc, w, and cut, hadn't ever run into them (cut especially seems especially useful, going to have to keep it in mind)

I'm not as bad as others I work with that will stream a line of cuts, awks, dc, heads,wc together to filter logs for info.

Generally, if I do whip out more than 6 piped commands together, I'll save it as a shell script.
