I'm learning UNIX in class, and I wonder why this hasn't become the most popular OS like Windows. The commands you can do in the terminal are insane.

But you don't need to use it if you don't want to. The real question, I think, is why doesn't Windows use the same terminal instead of their command prompt.

If you are an average user i'd say it is highly unlikely that you will never need to use terminal. Actually I would estimate that there is an 80% chance you will neeed to use terminal the first time you boot up X.

There is no doubt that Unix is the superior command based operating system, but for most people Windows (or mac) will probably be more suitable. Mac btw is unix based and does offer the Unix terminal allowing access to the core OS.

Windows' command prompt does have it's weaknesses, but you're actually able do quite a lot of advanced stuff using that as well.

Unix has long been the premier choice for hackers and crackers. Making it readily available to a wider user base isn't ideal for them.

Yeah, Linux and Mac OS X (since it's UNIX based) both have great terminals.

Windows' command prompt is awful.

Still, Linux > Windows IMO. Free OS, little to no virus issues, faster, a more powerful shell...

'Roon'. Bob Richards is an elitist, so he likely pronounces it as 'roo-in'.

I forgot to ask the conspiracy theorists if they believe that NBC tried to fix the Winter Classic to go into overtime.

I only ask because my dad, a conspiracy junkie, does.

I'm dangerously close to going on-topic. I hope I don't pick up an infraction.

I actually pronounce it 'roo-in'. Just needed another opportunity to call Bob an elitist.

Bob Richards is an elitist because:

1. He smokes Reds.
2. Pronounces words correctly.

The list grows.

You also use punctuation probably even semi colons totally rubbing it in everyone's faces

And because you won't listen to my music. Perhaps this one is more to your liking?
