What is the difference between Finger and Whois?

Whois connects to a NIC server and tends to provide more in-depth data. Whois will only provide information that is registered at the NIC server. The most common use is to obtain information about the owner of a domain. Finger typically connects to the provider of the user you are fingering, and provides you with the log in information of users that are currently logged on to the system.
