...when you don't even bother to burn the second CD, because who needs KDE or GNOME, honestly?

And on a more generic tangent,

You know you're a unix geek in general when...you're in college and you arrive in class only to realize you forgot to read the text for the night before, and you try to figure out how to grep hardcopy.

..When you prayed for Pat during his absence more than a dying family member.

(Note: I didn't have a chance to be guilty of this.. things were relatively calm in my life during Pat's illness )

...you're used to CTRL+W in pico/nano, and dismayed that it closes the window in 99% of Windows applications.

... When you keep on typing ls under a dos shell in windows , instead of dir ..

Though same could be said vise-versa , dos veterans somtimes confuse commands under linux :P (i know I do) md instead of mkdir , though funny enough , mkdir also works in dos shell.

By the way, ren under dos shell renames stuff, how do you rename things under the konsole???

You go to the disco with a Slackware.com t-shirt

PS: You "rename" with mv (which serves as move or rename).

That actually got me to the point where I created ls.bat on my windows box at the office.

Oh, and use mv [oldname] [newname] to rename stuff

mv also renames??? i thought it only 'moved' stuff, ....weird....

I like your idea about ls.bat though , map all the linux commands on an individual batch file, and place it under the system32 folder, clever, I need to do that, :P
