While that may be true, it's only because Bill Gates has probably never had a true friend his entire life, so ... none to lose.

Not to worry. No intellect is to be found within. :)

I prefer my masturbation to be monkey-free.

maybe it's a BSD thing.

Exactly how many monkeys (and how much time) would it take to program a unix operating system, anyway?

Let's not attempt that again. The last time someone tried to prove the Infinite Monkeys Theorem we ended up with Wikipedia.

I maintain that wikipedia has more sound than noise.

The occasional noise generated by Wikipedia is damned amusing, though.

heh. see OLPC. lots of great ideas, even some nifty initial planning. then completely screw the pooch on your execution and fire/drive out all the people who know how to execute that plan. 100% win! (or not....)

The people who want "100% Win" on OLPC are the ones who ruined it.

The XO has excellent WiFi range; it far exceeds my more expensive
semi-ruggedized TwinHead laptop. And the battery life is very good. Oh,
and the display is much easier to read outdoors than anything else I've seen
(even the daylight readable display which was a $400 add on to my TwinHead).

As for the perceived suckishness of Sugar ... people tend to lose sight of
what Sugar is intended to be used for. It's a learning system, for people with
little or no computer experience, which encourages people to focus on one
activity at a time. Sugar is not designed for experienced computer users who
frequently context switch.

As for me ... I live in the Terminal Activity (for ssh).

(Yes, we participated in the OLPC Give 1 Get 1 program; actually for us
it was G2G2).

"Learn 10 good UNIX usage habits"

I've been using unix systems for 25 years and I still learned a few things from this article. It's worth reading, even for non-newbies.

Change the path; do not move the archive

Perhaps if tar was REPLACED or written correctly, it would work like zip and allow you to optionally specify the dest path as the last parameter where it makes more sense.
This is another example of tuning the human to the tool rather than fixing the tool. It seems IBM has lost sight of this little reality.

My favorite was "grep -c". I've been doing "grep | wc -l" pretty much forever.
Even this old unix greybeard has a few things left to learn.

I've known about grep -c for a long time. It's amazing what you can find buried in man pages. :)
