Re: I recall the 8088 machine I learned on...

You car analogy is a little lame, for

"Mice are nice, but until you use the command line, play under the hood, you really don't understand what the machine can do or what it *is* doing..."

Then it wouldn't be driving a manual box over an auto (that's more like choosing an iPad over a MAC).

To use properly you analogy it would be like owning a modern hot hatch with all it's ecu's, fuel injection and stability control over a car with twin 45's, manual timing, adjustable suspension and manual brake balancing. Hence the phrase "getting under the hood"

That's getting under the hood and how many of you can do that?

The sooner we learn that 99.99% of the people out there don't give a crap how it works, so long as it does the better for everyone.
