Sticking to Legacy?

Time to reblog another of my all-time-favorites from xkcd: tar

I don’t know what’s worse–the fact that after 15 years of using tar I still can’t keep the flags straight, or that after 15 years of technological advancement I’m still mucking with tar flags that were 15 years old when I started.

There are plent of tools, which are still used today, athough they were crap from the start. I know, this example here is mocking Nix. But there are plenty of similar examples in the MS Windows ecosystem as well.

I am not mocking those tools. I am mocking the people who advertise to use those tools!
