Prompted to make the new kernel configuration tool, CML2, a better fit for "serious, hard-core hackers," Eric Raymond has concocted an interface style that starts something like this:
"Welcome to CML2 Adventure, version 1.6.1. You are in a maze of twisty little Linux kernel options menus, all different. The main room. A sign reads `Linux Kernel Configuration System'. Passages lead off in all directions." > n The arch room. A sign reads `Processor type'. A passage leads upwards. Choose your processor architecture. A brass lantern is here. There is a row of buttons on the wall of this room. They read: X86, ALPHA, SPARC32, SPARC64, MIPS32, MIPS64, PPC, M68K, ARM, SUPERH, IA64, PARISC, S390, S390X, CRIS The button marked X86 is pressed.
