Even sillier is the idea that if you're in one shell, the command works one way, but if you're in another shell it works differently. I guess when you want to tell someone how to do something in *nix, you'd better tell them not only the command, but also the shell to use. But now we digress into the land of *nix, at which point it quickly becomes a matter of opinion, rather than fact.
