I have mixed emotions about all these new rust cli tools like rg and fd.

On the one hand, they’re fast and ergonomic.

But then, we’re losing fluently with common Linux coreutils.

@honza I’m not sure what you mean by “ we’re losing fluently with common Linux coreutils”?

@stchris fluency*

The next generation of developers won’t know coreutils.

What’s grep?

Oh! It’s like rg. I get it now.

Hm...I think the tool that get's the job done the best will eventually be the most popular and people will know this tool.

Whether this is grep or rg doesn't actually matter, IMO.
