Back to the Terminal|
Graphical User Interfaces, popularized by with Apple's Macintosh in 1984,
and Microsoft's Windows 3.1 in 1992 and Windows95 in 1995, have been
a great boon to multimedia creation and consumption -- photography,
video, desktop publishing, web browsing, and more. However, the venerable
terminal is still there, ready to tackle important tasks -- not just on Linux,
but also under macOS / Mac OS X, and Windows!
In this talk, we'll discuss some interesting tools that can grant access
to things you'd not expect be available on low-powered, non-graphical
systems (for example, 30+ year old 8-bit home computers like Ataris,
Apple IIs, and Commodore 64s!)
Email, Twitter, online chat (IRC, Slack, and various Instant Messengers),
web browsing, word processing, spreadsheets, and even multitasking,
are all possibilities!
