"I have to admit. I do like the command line and one of my
favourite programs is Tilda. A drop down shell which allows me to
run commands quicker than any mouse happy click lover. More often
than not I run a quick command to do file operations, system
operations and remote connections. It's not pretty, all text and no
fancy eye candy but it gets the job done, fast.
"However, many proponents of proprietary operating systems
ridicule us Linux lovers for our command line commando ways and
maintain that it is not possible to use Linux without having to
write a command line or two. I have always said pshaw to that and
two seconds later found myself immersed in a bash shell. I put it
down to my habits and choice of Linux (Gentoo) as well as knowing
too much for my own good :)"
