New colleague in the office.

Him: How do you rename a file in terminal?
Me: Just sudo rm <filename>, rm stands for ReName.

I'm a horrible person.

    I'm so happy to use the GUI in 2017, don't need and don't care to use the terminal :)

    @dontbeevil GUI on windows server is legit, but not on linux

    @Data-Bound I think that I can speak in general, most developers are overreacting about command line stuff, they think to be cool using the command line, when you can do the same thing with 2 clicks, without typos or even worst wrong commands mistakes... and don't say that's is faster. (of course I'm talking in general and most of use cases, not specific ones where you cannot use the GUI at all or really slow you sensible down)

    @dontbeevil dont worry it's more my experience, on any Linuxsystem I always had the feeling that GUI is holding me back. I won't throw in the "faster" argument but the functional one like piping. While on windows I'd be pretty damn lost without GUI

    A few days ago I watched some "teenage mutant ninja turtles" movie. In one scene: "It uses a command line interface. No one uses that anymore". And I was like: everything I do on linux is with a cli (ok, I use gnome-terminal via x forwarding. But that's because vim-css-color doesn't work via putty). I will never work on a linux box without a shell. And if my boss wants me to, I will say goodbye.

    @dontbeevil why would anyone want to click anything ever, fingers on keyboard at all times mean I can do basically everything with my eyes closed, fast, precisely and see a full log of exactly what I'm doing

    Dude A: *Post rant on devRant* 😂
