> Um, my Sharp Zaurus came with bash
> preinstalled. Did you get a preview
No, not a preview but an early ROM version. I had to install the shell from the CD as well as the File Manager. No fortune program was found on the CD. (oh no)
This article makes no sense.
He confused all the different technologies and a number of other things. I mean when did "Unix" come to mean a system with X, Linux, and gcc (oh yeah fortune too). Why fill up the hard disk with gcc and all the development tools when someone who needs them can just install them. Just a silly article that sounds more like a school yard fight then anything else.
I have a Sharp Zaurus, it uses a Linux kernal. It didn't come with a bash shell pre-installed, is it not Linux now? Just silly logic...
I'm typing this on Linux now, I use Linux/KDE as my primary OS and desktop. I still find this article absurd, and I don't even have a Mac.
