But any adult OS has a terminal emulator built in.

And they all suck hairy donkey balls.. You know you have been using PuTTY too long when..
You LOL at all the post about www.chiark.greenend.org because you know how to blindly download the last version from the.earth.li.
The first thing you do on a brand new Mac is downloading VirtualBox and a warezed TinyXP just to run PuTTY.
You do the same on any fresh unixbox just to ssh into the host because you can't stand the behaviour of the native terminal emulator.
Can give a 20 minute speech on how PuTTY-on-Ubuntu/Mac/whatyouhave is Not The Same Thing
You pranked friends with a trojaned version in the previous century.

Religious leaders are supporting provisions in copyright law that could prohibit home writers and book enthusiasts from repairing and modifying their own bibles. In comments filed with a federal agency that will determine whether tinkering with a bible constitutes a copyright violation, churches and their main lobbying organisation say bibles have become too complex and dangerous for believers and third parties to even scribble in. The dispute arises from a section of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act that no one thought could apply to bibles when it was signed into law in 1998. But now, in an era where books are text files, the U.S. Copyright Office is examining whether provisions of the law that protect intellectual property should prohibit people from modifying or even put boogers in their hardcopy bibles.

Once it hits the fan, the only rational choice is to sweep it up, package it, and sell it as fertilizer.
