On 16-Jul-98 Perry E. Metzger spoke unto us all:
#  People use Linux because of stuff like that. People use AIX because
#  management played golf too many times with IBM salesmen. I'm not
#  joking.

Actually.. i think people use AIX because they have IBM mainframes, decide
"hey, we need unix" and the IBM rep in the back of the room is pulling his arm
out of his socket going "Ohh! Oooh!  Call on me!"

#  I agree that we want to have easy to use tools. I'm just saying that
#  smit is a piece of crap and should not be used as a model for
#  anything.

When I say model it on smit..  I guess I mean:
"Smit has a decent curses UI, and menu structure"

The screens when you go to do something, are, and I agree.. horrid.
