Not necessarily knowing all that Linux has to offer in the smallest detail, but that could become a key part of getting better performance and resources on your system that will help your work (or even avoid headaches and future frustrations). ).

Several factors contribute to this: The robustness of the system, bug fixes provided by the distribution, good hardware, a well-crafted kernel specifically for your hardware, improved drivers, and even a powerful file system.

Proof of this importance is that one of the factors that DragonflyBSD developer Matt Dillon developed was the Hammer file system to get the most out of system performance. Another proof of this was an article I read some time ago where they published the news that the Mac OS X file system (HFS) has a bug that files are unreadable after being stored for six years. We ended up losing the file.
