comment Efficiently delete large directory containing thousands of files
using + instead of \; would make this faster as it passes more arguments to rm at once, less forking

if you're going to use exec you almost certainly want not use -ls and do find . -type f -exec rm '{}' + + is faster because it will give as many arguments to rm as it can handle at once.

comment How to find out from the logs what caused system shutdown?
@gilles I gotta say this is subtly different, in the cat foo | grep bar vs grep bar foo sort of way, it appears that last is capable of filtering itself.

comment How to interpret the explicit references to GNU in the LSB specifications?
@jordanm and although I know very little about this standard... there is more than one rpm provider... Suse RPMS are not 100% compat with RHELs. Standards are for interop, but usually an implementation or prefereably two exist before the standard does.
