We shouldn't make another Linux... BeOS is a GUI oriented OS. The terminal is there because JLG chose to have POSIX compatibility.
Maybe not for R1, but for R1.1 there should be a GUI front-end for every Terminal service. I like it the hard way too, but I will not convince too many of my friends to use OBOS if it is not heavily GUI.
BeOS is not about only GUI. It's about GUI which makes things easy, but doesn't hide them just for the sake of it.
I disagree here... Hiding some things makes it more easy. Compare GNOME
to KDE for example.
If you have a look at the Terminal, you'll see many things have a CLI counterpart, even the CD player. (hint: /bin/play)
Does Windows have such a thing?
Dont forget CLI isn't only about geeks who want to make it hard.
:-) Sorry, that the way I see it!
It's also about scripting...
Yeah, for lazy programmers! :-)
