I remember it being useful for one thing: when I was unsure of the
correct way to do some AIX specific operation, I could enter SMIT, get
to where it was ready to do it for me, and it would show me the command
line it was about to run.  Then I could reread the man page for that
command, knowing which options and parameters SMIT would use.  So as a
learning tool it wasn't all bad.

Most people who graduate with CS degrees don't understand the significance
of Lisp.  Lisp is the most important idea in computer science.  --Alan Kay
