If you have any trouble sounding condescending, find a Unix user to show you how it's done.
- Scott Adams - Found on an web quotes site.
How I hated UNIX back in the seventies - that devilish accumulator of data trash, obscurer of function, enemy of the user! If anyone had told me back then that getting back to embarrassingly primitive UNIX would be the great hope and investment obsession of the year 2000, merely because it's name was changed to LINUX and its source code was opened up again, I never would have had the stomach or the heart to continue in computer science.
- Jaron Lanier - From his essay 'One Half a Manifesto', published at www.edge.org.
If Unix is the face of the future I wanna go back to quill pens.
- Joseph Snipp
If you want to travel around the world and be invited to speak at a lot of different places, just write a Unix operating system.
- Linus Torvalds
