Applying Unix Philosophy

I got rather excited about this feature on Applying Unix Philosophy to Personal Productivity over at LifeHacker. I read ESR’s book, the Art of Unix Programming, a number of years ago (it’s still around here somewhere…), but I’d forgotten most of it. As usual, someone’s done a much better job summing up the points in an easy to understand way than I could have.

I think that as developers, we could do ourselves a service by sticking to these points as we set out to develop software. I’ve got a post coming up in the future about keeping it simple, but this is a nice segway.
