Still Not As Hard As Unix 
- Recently an "analyst" (that's somebody who is fluent in techno-babble) made the following statement in reference to Windows 2000: "While it's still easier than Unix, it's quite a bit more complex than has traditionally been the case with Windows operating systems." Now I'd be willing to bet that this analyst doesn't know squat about Unix, and probably not much more about NT.
- Note: modern "grep" has flags for printing lines before and after the match. Search for "context" in the man/info pages. Before that was true, I used this silly script.
