What? The Unix Way!
The What is primarily “The Unix Way” as evolved at Bell Labs in Murray Hill New Jersey by the precursors to Ken Thompson who ultimately “bottled it”.
The Unix Way is to use short, timeless and flexible commands that can be strung together to great effect in a place where everything is a read/write file.
This short simple premise has profound ramifications that won over Linux, Apple, Google, Microsoft and ultimately you. It’s just a matter of time.
