Just because you were never told and never bothered to learn does not pre-suppose a lack of design.Ignorance is no excuse for claiming to be knowledgeable. It's like saying you never read the bible because it was all in Greek.

If you cut your teeth on Dec UNIX, Solaris, AIX and HP-UX, it's very easy to understand because you learn the history through comparison. This "I don't get it so there must be no rhyme or reason" is just crazy.
It's like the other old timer said - the new folks don't want to learn about how we got here - they just want to repeat our mistakes. I cut my teeth on Linux and then UNIX proper and then VAX since 1990 (TSR 80s and the like on 8086 processors and then 80386 systems before getting to real machines ). It's a proven fact that we are all social learners by nature. Maybe it's time to exercise our social learning instead of our social media which is leading to our social ignorance..
