Unix History: It is an offensive meme, but I cannot look away

Dion is to blame 😉 for the trivia that follows…

The new rage seems to be piping this to your blog:

history | awk ‘{a[$2]++}END{for(i in a){print a[i] ” ” i}}’ | sort -rn | head

It reminds me of history class at school. Always painfully boring, which is such a crying shame, as history itself is fascinating. How school managed to take the subject that could be so enjoyable, and such a tie in to all other subjects, and instead make it incredibly boring is a crying shame.

Drum roll …

150 ls
115 cd
60 vi
29 fortune -ooo
21 ssh
10 maven
10 cd..
9 svn
9 ping
9 find
7 rm

There, I dunnit. Offensive meme, but easiest post. Ever.
