You mean this? http://lists.busybox.net/pipermail/busybox/2010-December/074114.html It only says that "in 1974 [...] everything was statically linked", but not anything specific about /sbin there. I even believe that he got the part about /sbin historically wrong. There was no /sbin in early Unix versions (because "dangerous maintenance utilities" were in /etc). You can check this in https://www.in-ulm.de/~mascheck/various/ancient/ which shows that even in V7 Unix (1979) /sbin didn't exist yet. So certainly not in 1974 either. Ulrich
