"HAL: Affirmative, Dave, I read you. Dave Bowman: Open the pod bay doors, HAL. HAL: I'm sorry Dave, I'm afraid I can't do that."
-2001 A space odyssey

the irony in this is immense.

Hardware abstraction layer or hald is a program that automates the connection of devices to a linux computer.

here are the "pod bay" doors.
and to look for hal in ubuntu run "top" the program named hald is the
bot/daemon that controls the hardware interface.

Do you know why the letters H, A, and L were choosen by Asimov?

[to save time]

Because they are the letters that preceed I, B, and M.
