    I have my wallpaper set to change hourly.
    I have a huge folder of pics of wizards/dragons that I have set to be wallpapers.
    I won't go into the pics that I use for the screensaver.

    I'm with you on that one, I use CLI all the time with a nice framebuffer. Links, Pork, irssi, cdcd, Vi, and zsh for my shell is what I use mainly on a daily basis.

    A friend gave me a bunch of them, and I did a search for "wizards/dragons" on google/images.

    A wihle ago I used a folder with other pics and I set different desktops with different images to change hourly.

    I do not think I would be able to stand not "seeing" what I am doing. I probably will stick with GUI just for the looks

    budman7,
    What are you usually working on? Doesn't the constant switching effect anything? Or am I thinking of Windows? Where everything effects everything.

    Wha--?

    You can "see" what you are doing in CLI, too - I haven't any idea what you are talking about. Plus CLI is blazingly fast, with no bloat to weigh you down

    Let's say you need to look in a folder. cd to it and use ls. Let's say you installed program foo but you don't want it residing in your /home/foo directory. OK here it is
    Code:
    su
    <password>
    mkdir /usr/foo
    cd /usr/foo
    chmod o+w /usr/foo
    exit
    cp /home/foo/file_you_just_installed /usr/foo
    and it's that simple.. read and you will understand. I can basically do everything you can do in GUI.

    hmm I probably shouldn't have use foo that much in the example, I probably confused you.. you get the idea though. whereis is also a great tool.

    This thread has shown a definite tendency to become silly. Please stop that at once.

    Seriously though, let's not get into another GUI versus CLI argument here. They have their uses, and some people just prefer to use one or the other. I use both.

    Because you do not use a GUI or you just pick a colour?
    Both, I use the CLI and I also use X windows, when I am in X windows I use a solid colour background and use terminals, since I multitask a lot I tend to use X windows more as I prefer to have everything in one space.

    George Harrison,

    I know how to handle myself a little bit around CLI. I know it's simple when dealing with files. I meant not "seeing" by not having a GUI such as icons/toolbars/images what have you. Of course you can see the text in the command line... lol. No arguments, I just like GUI because I can "see" things

    CLI is still important especialy in server management, and when X server is unuseable
