There is a similiar problem in the German language: words were  
written in a way that they just produced a familiar sound. In the  
faulty writing words did not show that they had a past, a root, they  
belonged to certain ideas or circumstances. And this is also true for  
hard and symbolic links. If I can't rely on the truth and meaning in  
words or writings, why should I start to use them? I could take  
others, too. Softlinks are rubbish. No past, no meaning, no idea, but  
a great bright future.



The future will be much better tomorrow.
