the daily google searches are much more because interfaces are permanently
replaced - be it GUI's or CLI interfaces and configurations get invalid
due all that replacements - *there* is the problem - what you know today
maybe in 3 years as ivalid as what you learend 5 years ago about a Fedora
system and whatever you find with Google is quentionable and likely outdated

smart replacements whould keep interfaces as they are and only replace
the code behind and add some options but not break the semantic
