|| Like a classics radio station whose play list spans decades, Unix simultaneously exhibits its mixed and dated heritage. There's Clash-era graphics
interfaces; Beatles-era two-letter command names; and systems programs
(for example, ps) whose terse and obscure output was designed for slow
teletypes; Bing Crosby-era command editing (# and @ are still the default
line editing commands), and Scott Joplin-era core dumps.
