"One of the things that sets Unix apart from most other operating systems is that it has always been an OS whose primary focus was on what we call power users nowadays: people who want to squeeze every drop out of their system and know how. People who don't sit around and dream of what could have been, but crank up the compiler and start coding. Unix was meant to be programmed on. [...] Stephen's shell was small, slim, fast, a bit unwieldy at times and it oozed raw power that is still the envy of many an operating system's command-line interface."
