I'm curious as to what "the original Unix philosophy" is to you?

I've been doing Unix since 1987, and don't understand your comment.  
Isn't it to "Do one thing and do it well"? As I recall, it was all  
about pipes and filters: Focused simple programs read standard input  
and wrote to standard output and could be chained together with pipes.  
Back then, it was not about GUI applications. It was all about the  
command line.

None of our desktop Bible programs subscribe to that.

In Him,
