So how do you define /etc ? Slashdot has got an ongoing discussion about it. Does it means “et caetera” or “extended tool chest” ?
While also discussing how to pronounce it (I just love reading these discusions ;-D), I found that 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!
