    Thumbs up UNIX People
    Saw a post here tonight making some humorous references to UNIX folks. Thought I'd start a thread of Unix-esque humor and/or observations...

    You can tell someone is a Unix person when, throughout their MS Word documents, you find an occasional (or not so occasional) random :wq! inserted.

    Anyone else...
    Never judge a man, untill you have walked a mile in his shoes...
    That way you'll be a mile away from him, and you'll have his shoes.

    You write "goto" as one word.

    You accidentally type UNIX commands in AIM windows.

    The next sentence is true. The previous sentence is false.

    That's probably less frustrating than an Emacs person who keeps having text cut and copied (C-x C-c) while trying to exit .
