Yeah, I would have been surprised if you didn't know the difference, but I
wouldn't say that your choice of words made it at all obvious for the casual
reader. Hopefully I added a little clarity for our less experienced readers,

I agree that I should have taken a closer look at your second option and
acknowledged that it was a "simpler" way of getting the same result
as "du -k".
