This is off topic, but Simon, do you mind doing a short elaboration of your

Yes, it's off-topic. Search the archives--I've given my opinion on this many times and I'm not alone in that view (but there are large numbers opposed to it). Read the Unix Haters Handbook for a better discussion of things wrong with Unix than I could provide.

And while I'm OT, did you ever realize the UIM ebook you considered putting
together a few years back?

No. Insufficient demand. It would take months of my time and the financial return would be pathetic.
