Linux is a very complex system. So complex that, as was mentioned before, it cant really be put into words here. Probably the best summary that _i_ could give would be that linux consists of a complex system of ropes and pulleys, these ropes and pulleys are usually controlled by a very small penguin. This penguin may or may not have an assistant. The true mystery of linux is how the penguin got in there..

Also I was wondering how air works..

Alert!!!--possible troll?

We might have another OPHR** here.

**One-Post Hit and Run: The common occurence of someone registering, asking one question, and disappearing forever---leaving us talking to ourselves. Some MAY be trolls, but I think they need their own label---hopefully more elegant than the one I use.......

Actually, I'm glad this thread was started, since, as a noob, I've got some interesting information out of it.

BTW, xhi, around about 1930 politicians in Britain complained that, if you got ten economists in a room, you would get ten different opinions. Unless, of course, one of them was Keynes, in whch case you would get eleven opinions.

Me too---it's just good sometimes to check and see if the OP is getting any benefit...

If you get N Linux people in a room, and ask a question---by the time the discussion was over, you might forget the question....
