Yeah, it's sweet. Most of the user experience seems to be better polished
than the similar stuff on the proprietary unices. (let's face it, 1/2 of
the proprietary unices require several hours of downloading/installing GNU
software before they're usable!)
The only difficulty still outstanding for a typical C/C++ developer
migrating from other unices, is the lack of a memory-leak checker up to
the standard of Purify. (Rational *still* haven't ported it).
And when things go wrong, you can Use the Source to figure out workarounds
