Google Take a step back in time to use Google in your command line interface. GoogleCL "streamlines tasks such as posting to a Blogger blog, adding events to Calendar, or editing documents on Google Docs." Aside from Blogger, Calendar, and Docs, it also provides CLI access to your Google Contacts, Picasa, and YouTube. Whether you're in it for the sheer joy of feeling like it's 1984 again or for the ease of doing a load of tasks in a batch or even incorporating it into your scripts for uber functionality and friendliness with your other apps, this nifty little program is for you. The app is native to Linux, but Mac and Windows users can use it with a bit of fenangling-- all you'll need is Python 2.5 or 2.6, and Windows users will need to add Cygwin to the mix.

cygwin for win32 has the worst installer ever.

gg installing svn by default, but not a text editor (vi at least, please)

And that's supposed to make it "the worst installer ever"?!?

Sure, it's UI isn't great, but it does the job. It recently sprouted a search box to make it easier to find packages, and command line options that allow to use it without the UI.

Svn is not installed by default btw, nor is vi, because if they were, too many would complain about "bloat". The idea is to provide only what's needed to install packages and run a shell, and let the user decide what else they need.
