"Alex: Linking files and directories is easy,
and makes your life easier. For example, Star Office 5.2 by default
makes a work directory called ~/office52/user/work, which it uses
to store your work. I find it convenient to store all my work in
the same directory. When using other programs, though, I find it
annoying to type that long pathname over and over to get to my
work, so I've made a link from ~/work to ~/office52/user/work."
"There are two types of links: hard links and soft links. As I
progress the difference between the two will become clear."
