  • Why I like the CLI

    Ogg version (12 minutes), MP3 version (6 Mb, 12 minutes)

    Why I like the CLI:

    • Uses minimal resources. Less space, less memory, fewer dependencies.
    • Transparency. GUI hides internals, limits options.
    • Similar between Unix-like systems. GUI tools seem to change every week.
    • Remote management. SSH rocks.
    • Everything is text. Configs, devices, output. CLI is natural complement.
    • Pipes and scripts. One time is hard, a thousand times is easy.
    • Only need a few tools. Grep, sed, awk, vi, cron.
    • Text config files. Easy to version, share, and comment.
    • Requires reading skills instead of clicking skills.
    • Much faster when you know what you are doing.
