The paradigm of small tools that do exactly what they're supposed to,
and can be combined? Nope. There's still a philosophy of services that
fit together like a jigsaw puzzle, rather than expecting each
application to do everything you want it to. A standard Unix command
line might consist of three or more tools, piping from one into
another - grep the Apache log for lines containing the name of a PHP
script, pipe that into awk to pick up just the user name, IP address,
and date (without time), then pipe into uniq (deliberately without
first going through sort) to show who's been using the script lately.
And then piped it through sed to clean up the format a bit. Yep,
that's something I did recently.

Point to note: This is the Unix *philosophy* versus the Windows
*philosophy*, not Unix *programs* versus Windows *programs*. There are
Windows programs that follow the Unix philosophy.
