I'm with you 1000% on this one Korny, and for every reason you've stated.
The short answer to it though is this: contrary to most Unix-heads' beliefs,
the world did not stop on the date that Unix was invented.  Progress (dare I
say, "innovation"?) has in fact occurred since the first line of C code was
written, the last VT-100 terminal was thrown in the trash, and the X-Windows
mess was thought up.
