I am bit n00bish when it comes to networking and server environments but I set up stuff and normally get it to work, somehow, as intended. Doing this we all, both Unix and Windows Admins, need to rely to a high degree on the Command prompt. We are dependant on this: http://mally.stanford.edu/~sr/computing/basic-unix.html and its corresponding commands in "Windows". And those aint even half of them. Still, we look for improvements in the user interface, we judge the interface, we complain or praise the interface, but we see no clear tendency for the OS Interface to actually begin to replace the prompt. Why is that? I know, a prompt is often faster, you type "md directory" and that is faster than right-clicking in the folder and selecting create directory. Provided you are "there" with the command prompt. Networking commands are often usually much faster with better result. So why is it essential to use a prompt and why does it not get replaced by an intuitive graphical interface? Why do we get more command interfaces in stead of fewer (Powershell)? What can we expect from the future OS development?
