command line will *always* matter. "the logos" can always express things
which the image or sound themselves will never be able to. so i don't
think command line will _ever_ become obsolete. not even if we will
connect our mind directly to the computer.
in fact, as soon as we can "talk" to the computer, the command "line"
will be the most... modern way to talk to computers. no way for it to
ever become obsolete.
i was only arguing against low-level programming languages, because of
which almost all my non-techie friends think programming is only for
engineers. (of course... c(++) and assembler is a valid evolutionary
step for now.)
and i am sure you very much agree.
