What do you think of Linux minus the command line? HP Mini Mi is the netbook powered with Linux, sans command line. The general efforts of making Linux more usable seem to be going against the command line. While I think that GUI is functional and easier to start with, the command line is the best tool to make best use of the powerful shells and scripting to get more productive. Of course, the common man might not miss the command line, and it might not hurt the sales. However, I sincerely feel that the path to productivity is not towards avoiding command line, but using it along with the GUI. In this case, maybe HP should offer a way of enabling the command line instead of locking it away.
