The first thing I do when given a new shell account is alias rm to rm -i to protect everyone from me. :P

    I can understand that, but since I put almost everything under git, it's less interesting to me.

    However, personally, as part of my standard setup, I unalias all the common commands, in case some (IMHO misguided) sysadmin decides to inflict behaviour-changing options on standard commands via aliases. I'm all for a customized environment, but the standard commands (like ls, rm, cp, mv, ...) have to *work* the same or stuff breaks. Instead, I make my own shell functions, like e which is a wrapper around whatever my favourite editor is with name-remembering. I don't make an alias or function which has the same name as one of the usual commands as I've wasted too much time trying to figure out why a pipeline wasn't working due to ls not really being ls.

[Corion]: marto: Heh - currently they seem promising, but I think I'll stay with nVidia+Intel for the time being, as I've been bitten too often by bad AMD drivers
