My experience of HowTo's is that it will get the job done but I have
no clue in what I have just done and that is Not A Good Thing.
The advantage of real documentation for me is..
Looking for A I trip over B and C, next week I find that I need C.
Starting the search for C tripping over D,E and F. And so I have
learned almost everything I know.
In my opinion computer courses miss to tech people to read, even the
Windows courses does not show people how to help themself instead they
call the helpdesk with stuff like "How do I make the text larger" and
we all like that don't we.
Same thing exists with OpenBSD's "Secure By Default" I am bound to
trip over "Telnet is unsecure" when trying to find how I enable it.
