What do you mean by "version compared to 5.0" ?

Hmmm....

Linux is currently on version 2.6.32.5 http://kernel.org/ version 5 might be around in 15 - 20 years.

Do you mean RedHat Entterprise Linux? If so, 5.4 is the current patch level. The idea of rating or comparing anything at all based on the number of commamds available is very very silly, and hopefully not what you actually wanted to ask.

I do hope this isn't a serious question.

I'd be willing to bet he's referring to Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5. My experience has been that tons of people either believe that RHEL is "Linux" or at least they refer to it that way.

TBH, there are some conventions with ISO vendors do just call it "Linux" due to the license issues in formally branding it as RHEL. Like CentOS referring to "a prominent North American Enterprise Linux vendor"

whatever he means though, very much not a networking question in the slightest. Moved.

Redhat EL 5.0 to .. 5.4 : no new commands.

The new "versions" are just supplying updates
for the original release packages.

I merged your two threads---you obviously meant to reply to the first one---not start a new thread.

Note: When you refer to commands, that is a function of the shell (eg BASH) and the various utilities. In principle, you could have an update to a distro or the kernel without changing the version of BASH. Also, an update to BASH is not liekly to include any new commands.
