Mostly, partitioning according to directory structures has nothing to do with disk space, but with intention. There are many many arguments pro and contra partitioning.

Or the Midnight Commander's editor, mcedit. :-) The good thing about vi - yes, there is such a thing - is the fact that it even works completely under the weirdest circumstances, e. g. if you are on a terminal line that does not have cursor keys or function keys, then you can still use the full power of vi, as long as you know how to master it, but that's true for anything in the UNIX world. > But isn't there emacs in the ports too? Sure, let's take emacs into the OS, as well as any other editor one could imagine. And because most people like graphical applications, let's include OpenOffice for editing configuration files in maintenance mode. :-) -- Polytropon >From Magdeburg, Germany Happy FreeBSD user since 4.0 Andra moi ennepe, Mousa, ... _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-questions-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
