And now HAL is a dinosaur and if you try to ask about using it,
people look at you like you have lobsters crawling out of you ears
(FYI: udev is now the king).

I love the way subsystems come and go like cosmology theories.
One day a theory will be hailed as the one true explanation for
the entire universe, the next day it will be scoffed at as a
more "elegant" theory replaces it. (And none of them had any
way to be tested for validity :-).
