The same pervasive attitude... You failed but I did not fail, the more
so I explained in plain English (I hope) why the toots might be helpful.

I know standard unix commands I program in shell. Does it mean that I
should stick to them for full 50 years of my life? Pathetic...

Of course, I am not so stupid to bang my head onto concrete wall of
chastity of Unix diehard users.

BTW. I do not want to creat another thread not be slamed for my uncouth

It would be nice and convenient for ***ME*** if the DFBSD used the idea
of system software chunks aka sets conjured up by NetBSD and OpenBSD
teams. Why not creat one more set of useful tools with Lynx, MC, and
other apps? CD size is big and modern networks provide fast downloads.

"Sorry, but I simply did not fail to see that" DFBSD system might
gain having such tools distibuted on its ISO and be the leader on the
BSD trek of all BSD flavors. For all those like me who like to use mc
or lynx. We have the right to breath too, haven't we?
