I'd guess pretty much anybody who what's to utilize the amount of RAM
you can have nowadays, but doesn't have any single program that needs
that amount of memory. Or, like in my case, just needs it for
Throw in some "i don't want to reinstall" or "my Distribution isn't
biarch" and you have someone who justs recompils their kernel and be
done with it. It took me only a few minutes (rotating my hardware around
that day took way longer)
Real Programmers consider "what you see is what you get" to be just as
bad a concept in Text Editors as it is in women. No, the Real Programmer
wants a "you asked for it, you got it" text editor -- complicated,
cryptic, powerful, unforgiving, dangerous.
