Substitute `slightly different' for `evil and incompatible':).

That's why it's so usable to use an escape so that the nice binary
would be used, not the built-in command:

$ \nice -n 19 make

There's more than nice to change priority; for example, check out
rtprio(1) and idprio(1). Just FYI.


A diplomat is someone who can tell you to go to hell in such a way that
you will look forward to the trip.
