That's a fascinating way to put it. How ironic that the operating system
whose philosophy is "if you didn't know that that two letter command was going
to delete your files, you shouldn't be using the machine" comes from Berkeley,
and the one that tries for clearly named commands that the common people have
a chance of understanding comes from MIT! :-)
Like control-meta-shift-y? I think we all have plenty to improve upon.
