Linux/Unix became "the universal glue": what other systems couldn't or
wouldn't allow you to do, you'd do something, usually trivial, on
Linux/Unix to make happen.

Like the 30 seconds I once spent creating a shell script to generate
BIND/named forward/reverse lookup files for some Windows Admins - They
wanted a copy... What was that?????

Like PERL, the swiss-army chainsaw of scripting language, Linux allows,
"One Problem, Many Solutions".

Good to see that playing out here so we all learn new things.
