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.

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

    @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.
