This bit from a /. interview with Rob Pike

8) One tool for one job? - by sczimme
Given the nature of current operating systems and applications, do you
think the idea of "one tool doing one job well" has been abandoned? If
so, do you think a return to this model would help bring some innovation
back to software development?

(It's easier to toss a small, single-purpose app and start over than it
is to toss a large, feature-laden app and start over.)

Those days are dead and gone and the eulogy was delivered by Perl.

The next question is a goodie too:

9) Emacs or Vi? - by Neil Blender


N...  you'll have to visit and read the answer.
