Enough said.

Sometimes I think that people who grew up with GUI-based OSes have severely
crippled thinking abilities. I.e. they can't think "outside the (GUI ?)

Under _any_ OS one can take _any_ text editor which has configurable
colors, configure the colors to his/her liking, write commands in the
editor and copy-paste them into the application - 'octave', for example.

I recently had a need to work under Windows in their brain-dead cmd.exe,
and luckily there is a nice notepad++ GPL editor (with syntax highlighting
mode for 'octave' among many other language) _and_ with a possibility to
run shell from it.

The editor is a multi-tab one, which makes it really nice.

he/she automatically has a GUI for it, and the GUI is called "your favorite
text editor".
