Pardon me dear non-unix readers. But I could not pass this up. Brilliant quote on a lifehacker comment thread. The article was about “*nix commands for windows”. Someone commented about /dev/null not being there in windows, but present in Cygwin.
The fact that /dev/null really exists is subject to debate. Some went there but never came back 🙂
