Hardware, Embedded Systems "In this article, I show at the transistor and silicon level. I've discussed the mathematics of the 6502 overflow flag earlier and thought it would be interesting to look at the actual chip-level implementation. Even though the overflow flag is a slightly obscure feature, its circuit is simple enough that it can be explained at the silicon level."

The point was <anything> outside <what some people know>. Embarrassingly they thought of AIX as some kind of operating system that does all the Windows thing, only different. Zo they assumed a GUI somewhere, a domain controller, the Administrator, drive letters.

Yes, Microsoft has this annoying habit of moving stuff/settings, almost to a point it could be called deliberate hiding.

The CLI is often helpful, but sometimes thing disappear, like the 'telnet' command that was present in Windows 2003, but is left out by default in Windows 2008 and needs to be added.

If management really knew how UNIX/Linux/Windows worked I'm pretty sure it would have a devastating effect on Windows server market share.
