It is not UNIX’s job to stop you from shooting your foot. If you so choose to do so, then it is UNIX’s job to deliver Mr. Bullet to Mr Foot in the most efficient way it knows.

Here is Terry Lambert quote for you.

It is not UNIX's job to stop you from shooting your foot. If you so choose to do so, then it is UNIX's job to deliver Mr. Bullet to Mr Foot in the most efficient way it knows.

It is not UNIX’s job to stop you from shooting your foot. If you so
choose to do so, then it is UNIX’s job to deliver Mr. Bullet to Mr Foot
in the most efficient way it knows.

Do you agree with it?

    Absolutely agree. That is one of the beautiful things about Unix and its underlying philosophies–it exists to do what you tell it do “in the most efficient way it knows.” We’ve all typed a stupid command at a shell prompt before, and watched our OS dutifully carry it out. But far more often, we’ve watched it do amazing things that we instructed it to do, because the Unix tools are small, efficient and interoperable.
