I really like the command line interface, it really gives you a direct sense of what the computer is doing. For example, if you’re using Microsoft Excel and trying to open a massive file, the app will just freeze and you’re not sure if the program is working or crashing. For me, the best part is that if I type in a command and I get the next line returned, it worked. And it’s also really cool to type all this stuff and have your screen explode in text like you’re hacking the Pentagon.
The downside for me is that if it doesn’t work, you’re shit out of luck. Since I’m working off a tutorial, any outdated information or any sort of situation that isn’t outlined is going to completely derail this entire process. But I guess that’s technically the fun part.
