La signification de /etc

Quelle est la signification de /etc ? Il y a une discussion en cours sur Slashdot. Est-ce “et caetera” ou “extended tool chest” ?
Alors que la discussion porte aussi sur sa prononciation (j’adore lire ce type de discusions ;-D), je viens de trouver ce post :

emacs - Escape Meta Alt Control Shift.
gdb - Get Down Baby.
gcc - Give Communism (a) Chance.
linux - Linus Is Not Usually Xeroflulogitic.
lisp - Lisp Is (for) Symbolic Programming.
java - Just Another Variant (of) Ada.
perl - Perl Essentially Resembles Lisp.
printf - People Rarely Insist (on) Naming This Function.
sed - Slashdot (is) Easily Duped.
top - Totally Ongoing Programs.
vi - Very Irritating.

Made my day!
