it is quite possible that there are a lot of new Linux users who post for help on forums and then somebody advises them to "blablabla | grep blala" or anything else with the pipe in it and these newbies (including yours trully) probably think that the pipe is an "I" or an "l" or still something else; they try guess it or leave it out of the command, thus adding even more confusion and frustration to their plight; some will post more questions and get their problem solved but some will give up and return to the other OS.


so the pipe is not as a trivial matter as it may appear...
