I'm a professional sysadmin in the Research Triangle Park area of North Carolina. I've been doing sysadmin work since 1996, I've worked for a smattering of companies including Red Hat, two academic institutions, a regional bank, and now a rail transportation and logistics company.

comment What exactly is the difference between pipes and streams?
But you don't have to do anything special to get that stream - it's just there automatically. That's the important point to me. Again, I may not have been completely technically accurate, but I'm trying to help clear up the confusion.

comment Why are --older-than and --younger-than killall options missing in RHEL/CentOS?
Yes - I just checked a RHEL 7 system. At least, man killall has the options documented.

comment Why does every user have his own group?
Do some research on the concept of "user-private groups". This has been explained in many different places.
