And yet some of the most successful systems are not built that way.
Built what way? I think you misunderstood what I said, so I'll say it again more clearly:
The Unix way is a way to build good systems. You can skip "stringing together commands" and still follow the Unix way.
And people certainly do like banned things; it makes them feel that they're learning some secret information that the powers that be have ulterior motives for concealing.
That's so true.....think how many people got excited about the "establishment" suppressing the truth after the Lancet retracted that vaccine study paper....
In other words, the "eXtensible Emoji Protocol" (or XEP) that I keep joking about around the office
The problem with emoji is that there are so many, but not enough to cover every possible symbol someone might want to send. As such, people see the gaps a bit too easily, and are constantly demanding "just one my symbol." (Not to mention that most people don't realize they're part of a universal standard, and not something each individual IM service decided to include/exclude.)
Eventually, you'll either wind up with an unmanageable bazillion emoji (rather than just hundreds), or there will be a backlash where we reduce to a minimum set necessary to represent all possible concepts. (Hey, isn't that called an alphabet?)
Yet Emoji actually came from Japan.
With systemd I'm starting to think that being an idiot once over will be enough as well.
The whole udev thing merging with systemd really astonishes me. I'm not sure how anyone thought that would make sense.
If the Japanese were able to modernize their language in 46 Hiragana glyph I don't see why we should tolerate that Chinese non-sense in unicode
The Japanese language has over 2000 standard characters, and even more in common use.
Anyway, Chinese is a beautiful language, you should learn it some time.
