Perhaps it avoids this, but I still think it is better and
more efficient to learn while typing than while blindly
copying 'n pasting. At least you really learn what you are
making (and after all this is LFS' main goal, isn't it?)

(A second reason is that I usually work from command line,
'cause it is easier given the hardware I am using; but I agree
in advance I am disnormal on this regard.)
