DESCRIPTION
     The file /etc/motd is normally displayed by login(1) after a user has logged in but before
     the shell is run.	It is generally used for important system-wide announcements.  During

     Individual users may suppress the display of this file by creating a file named
     ``.hushlogin'' in their home directories.
