describes the surprising results of a brief trial with a group of new computer users about the relative ease of the command line interface versus the GUIs now omnipresent in computer interfaces.
I use a command-line interface (CLI) all the time in UNIX and Windows, but I never see typical users of PCs using a CLI unless they’re instructed to by a computer techie. I miss the good ole DOS days. I should rewrite my famous DOS programs (Utter and Seek) to work for Windows. People paid me for using them, even though they were free.
