Single Quotation Marks with Linux Systems

Ever notice that opening single quotation marks in Linux man pages use a backtick and the closing single quotation marks use an apostrophe?

And when single quotation marks are used as double quotation marks the pattern is repeated twice?

Like `this' and ``this''.

Rather than 'this' and "this".

Why does the word moronic come to mind?
