comment What is the difference between “nothing but”, “anything but”, and “everything but”?
and "all but" - seen here for example: "Apple has sent out event invitations for an announcement on March 2, all but certain to be focused on the next-generation iPad.", from arstechnica.com/apple/news/2011/02/…
