Don't consider them quirky - but then, I've worked in a number of *Nixes,
and done admin on Sun, Sun Solaris and Tru64, as well as SuSE and RH, and
found the differences relatively trivial, though Unbuntu's a little more
irritating. Still, if you understand how it all works, it's more a
difference in dialect, not a separate, unrelated language.
