Careful with broad statements like that.  On at least one flavor of unix,
"killall" killed *all* processes, not just ones matching a parameter.  I
forget where to find the anecdote, but it was very disturbing.

[looking with google]

Ahh, here it is:


  The implementation supplied with genuine UNIX System V (including Solaris)
  and with the Linux sysvinit tools (as killall5) is a particularly dangerous
  command that kills all processes that the user is able to kill, effectively
  shutting down the system if run by root.

Heh.  That *would* be surprising.
