    I read through some of it too. Agree on all points. However, there is a need for a text kind of like this. I used unix for a year before I understood the idea of small tools -- Unix Power Tools [oreilly.com] was my key to enlightenment, and only in an inductive way.

    One saving grace: ESR came close to saying something interesting about vi versus emacs [catb.org]. I found the discussion of the Plan-9-inspired wily [yorku.ca] particularly illuminating.

    Unfortunately, because he's ESR, his interesting start ended with him bullying the facts into supporting his own prejudices (emacs rulz0rs, d00d).
