Nate seems to know much more about Linux than philosophy, because Occum's
(yes that is a frequently applied spelling) razor refers to William
of Occum or Ockham or Occam (1258-1349). Many English words and names,
particularly place names have variant spellings.
In any event, the principle of looking for a simple rather than more
complex explanation for a problem still applies in spite of my choosing a
spelling that Nate didn't particularly prefer.
But he seemed to know what I was talking about...
