well, that’s the damn nifty thing about Linux, you know? And not just Linux, *NIX and *BSD and all that too. They’re all very similar at their core (although I’m not a kernel architecture geek and I guess I don’t really know that)—but they differ in their practices for weird reasons—sometimes brilliant, sometimes pigheaded, sometimes, like you said, just a programmer’s whim.
With the incredible modularity of systems like Linux, you really can just… install a new method for naming and managing devices. Then use it. That still blows my mind, the idea that I can just swap out critical parts of my operating system at will.
Modern times, man.
