POSIX I/O must die.
Saw that. It was a particularly poorly-written and ill-conceived article which did not make one single coherent point to support the tagline. Jon "maddog" Hall, ancient hacker, summed it up correctly in the comments section.
LS, where did you find the maddog comment?
me just thought, no database? browser? when did you last use firefox?
It wasn't until they blew it by abandoning that intention and pursuing the Windows path instead, that they really became the operating system vendor that everyone loves to hate. (And yes, I've tried Windows 7, and it's just as bad as Windows 1.)

Agreed. I have Win7Pro.x86 at home and WinXPpro.x86 at work, but on all of my computers that actually make any difference in the world, all 3 run Ubuntu9.10.

RFC2553 specifies that you can open an IPv6 socket, bind it to "in6addr_any", and accept connections from both IPv4 and IPv6 clients. I have confirmed that this works properly on Linux.
From what I can find through a bit of Googling, the only operating system that ignores these semantics is OpenBSD (which only accepts IPv6 connections on a socket bound to in6addr_any).
Is that correct? Or are there other operating systems which require double the work to support dual stack server programs?
tar -cvfO pattern|tar -xC /new/location
rsync -va --rsh=ssh /local/path/ firstname.lastname@example.org:/remote/path/
or if it's on the same machine
rsync -va /source/path/ /destination/path/
Always make sure the target directory is already created and that you include the trailing slash.
why doesn't it give an error that there's parameters missing?

I posted this:
They say it's supposed to do that. I don't buy it.
I think GNU rm added a new feature in recent history where it won't accept '/' as a target.
Maybe a new feature request is in order: '-r' flag won't work without additional '--fuckme' option. When wildcard , '.', or '..' are target, requires additional '--til-im-dead' option. I should submit a patch.
no news is good news. and, you forced it.
rm -rf /usr
You probably won't get any response. this is good news?
I happened to type rm -rf and hit enter by accident and it came back.
The fact that it came back immediately made me realize it couldn't have done anything too bad, before I had a panic attack.
