Ftwalk is a high level script programming language, very similar to awk, but greatly extended to include a richer type system, object-oriented features, 300+ built-in functions, extensibility through dynamic libraries, etc., which makes it roughly comparable to languages like Perl. It does file tree searches, and was originally used to implement selective redundant copy backup stores. It can be run interactively as a calculator.
Drivers at CompUSA
> Demand #1: I want a Linux driver available for every piece of hardware on sale at CompUSA.
More importantly, I want every CompUSA to stock computers with Linux pre-loaded, and to have salesguys who can identify Linux-compatible hardware and steer you through the drivers and configuration. Same for every other major retailer. And I want those retailers who don't support Linux to feel bad about it, like they're really stupid.
I think the lack of retail channel support is, much more than any technical shortcomings, the main factor limiting broader use of Linux as a home desktop system.
