Red face An essay.

Computer is a machine for many kinds of job.

Car is a machine to move object (human, cargo) to one place to another.

There are different kind of cars, from motorcycle (moped, Harley Davidson), sedan, hatchback, minivan, truck (tow truck, dump truck...) , bus (London bus, highway bus...), trailer, bulldozer, snowmobile, F1 ricing car.....

Unix is the world where we can find many parts and assemble them for our purpose, we can tune as much as we want.

Evil bil's junk is designed for office use.

So, for some other purpose, it is as if putting a lot of load on top of bus, and happy saying "I am delivering this many cargo". Yes, it is possible. But why not use truck for delivery.

A while ago, evil bil refused to unbundle IE from his junk. This is something like he refused to remove chairs from bus, because he welded chairs to frame.

Let's stay as flexible as possible. Let's have vast variety of Penguins,

But, do you know how to assemble F1 racer, garbage truck? Whenever I try, something goes wrong. This is the nice place to find help.

Happy penguins.

Nice essay. You very clearly and simply illustrated the simple point that choice in the market place is a good thing.
