One thing I like about ps ax is that it's one key less that ps -ax - but
gives the same result. Try ps ef and you get a completely different
output to ps-ef!
If was a post by Bruce in blfs-support that prompted the question. He
uses -ef too. I see the attraction. Maybe I can retrain my wrist and
fingers, I think it's in muscle memory now :-) we'll see.
