Well, uname is used by a lot of scripts that I've seen to get info about
the system.  I also use "df" all the time to see how much disk space I
have remaining.  I never liked "ping" in sbin because I often use that
to see if a system is alive before trying to use it further.

    In theory, theory and practice are the same.  In practice, they're not.
