Ok, I’ve been running gui free for a week now and I noticed something I never expected…

At first I caught myself repeatedly reaching for a mouse that wasn’t there, then I started to get used to the command line functions… and now I hardly have to look at my little cheat sheet.

Though lynx has a lack of functionality that I find annoying…

The thing is I noticed my constant use of command line has forced me to be less visual. Now I think about what I’m doing and my focus seems to be improving.

I find physical activity eaiser, I find I have more energy, and I find it’s easier to get up in the morning… I’m not sure WHY any of this would be caused by using command line… but it all started when I started using CLI exclusively…

meh.

  1. Wow… that’s something when an operating system improves your mental abilities…

    I love using the keyboard instead of the mouse, because I’m just faster that way. I was giddy with excitement when I discovered the keystroke for minimizing a window in Windohs (ALT+Space N).
