"Have we gotten the Unix GUI all wrong? Unix is more than
anything else a big bag of tools for people to use to construct a

part of the toolset. But I think we're selling the gui
"It seems to me like we could do a lot more to integrate the gui
into standard Unix tools. For example, if I run tar inside X, then
tar ought to pop up a completion bar. Why not? Or tail --follow
name=/var/log/maillog ought to tell me how many lines per minute
it's scrolling past. Why not?"
