Because it is actually "netstat -anp" that will (also) list the
services. The reason for using nmap is that it is a popular tool
for ... mapping other's people machines. As such, you may want to
know about its existence and defend yourself against it. There are
certainly other methods, but that's the one I happen to have
mentioned. But, yes I will add the netstat thing, also because it is
the way for retrieving services and deleting them (as from point 8).
