the best use I know of for symbolic links is so that you don't end up getting a crowded path statement, or copy so many different files around everywhere. I even wrote a script that allows you to create a symbolic link into your /usr/bin directory (or any directory that is already in your path). the script is located here and it's used by typing
Code:
link2path <fileToLink> <directoryInPath>
or
link2path test.sh /home/jbsnake/bin

fun stuff :)
