+the software bad.
+
+I did not fall for the minimalism meme, but sometimes Minimalistic
+software less bad than non minimalistic software. Sometimes a
+"bloated" program is way better than non bloated ones, for example,
+Emacs vs Vim. Or Firefox vs Surf.
+
+
+
+Here you can find a table (Consider this as a TODO) I am not including
+GNU utilities because, altough they don't follow standards, their
+extensions are kinda useful. So I don't consider them harmful.
