Someone stood up and tried to point out some incompatibilities between true Korn shell and Microsoft's impost^H^H^H^H^H^Hemulation. The Microsoft guy insisted it was 100% compatible. The two argued for a while until someone else stood up and said to the Microsoft weenie, "Sir, it may interest you to know that the gentleman you've been arguing with is the inventor of the Korn shell."
