Windows This is mandatory listening and watching material for understanding the design methodology and ideas behind the Metro interface in Windows 8 (and thus, Windows Phone 7). All this sounds great in theory, and Jensen Harris, one of the minds behind Metro, is clearly passionate about it - and I love people who are passionate about their work. It's just that to me, the Metro UI doesn't seem to work very well for actual work. I want window management! I'm taking all this into account for an article on Metro in the Developer Preview. Stay tuned.

And then GUI-only Mac OS got some real UNIX chops and MS released power shell and the majority of servers still use command-line driven interfaces. Never mind that every time you enter a URL or do a Google search or work with a spreadsheet, you're using a command-line interface.

The reports of the CLI's death have been greatly exaggerated.
