i will always read fstab as f stab and not fs tab and there's nothing anyone can do to change that

this is, apparently, a much more common thing than i thought

@InspectorCaracal ngl im mildly surprised that im not alone in this

@skelly@redroo.ml there's at least two of us!

it actually took me like two years to realize that it's short for "file system table" and I was like OOOOHHHhhhh well too late to change now

@skelly "vie et see eff stab", one of many magical incantations that powerful wizards may use to break a computer

@skelly i know 0 admins, professional or otherwise, that call it F S Tab

@skelly I literally only now learned it stands for file system tab. Regardless, I will still continue to read it as f stab.

@skelly I always expand it directly to "facestab file system".
