Get Plan 9 and spend some time writing shell script using nothing but
the programs Plan 9 provides. With a little persistence you'll find how
much better it is to have a few (tiny) tools than a huge mess of
different ones.

Developing the austere intellectual discipline of keeping things
sufficiently simple is in this environment a formidable challenge,
both technically and educationally.
