A problem sweeping the nation. With the need to ever use MS-DOS
dwindling with every new Windoze
release, an entire generation of kids are growing up never having used a command line
. Hopelessly chain to their graphical user interface
s, they know not what it REALLY use a computer. Not that GUIs are bad, (I mean, personally, I don't think i could stand using pine for email), but there's just a kind of nerdy elagance to typing away at a commmand prompt.
I mean, even a few years back, you still needed to know a bit of DOS to launch Duke Nukem 3D
. I mean, it?s bad enough that these people have never seen a *NIX
Fortunatly, there are some improvements. The gaining popular of Linux
, for one. No matter how spiffy GNOME
get, you still need a command line for true *NIX usage.
operating system, which for sixteen odd years has existed sans command line, is now taking a step backward (forward?). Mac OS X
, based on BSD, has a terminal within it.
The solution is simple: dump Windoze ;-)
