How was it? What programs did you use?

I want to try it, but the browser thing is a deal breaker I think.

    Back in 2013 / 2014 I had an A- Korean monitor, trying to get that thing to cooperate with was a nightmare. I think it took me about a week to finally get X working and in the meantime I was only able to use the CLI. That was my baptism of fire into the Linux terminal haha.

    Honestly, it is not practical to exclusively use a CLI in 2021. If you need to work on spreadsheets, make presentations, use web apps, do any graphical work, or use video conferencing, etc it’s gonna be rough. Even where CLI applications exist for these tasks they usually have a far steeper learning curve, a less efficient workflow, and the files produced don’t always render correctly in the graphical applications that everyone else is using.

      I agree with you 100%. Anything that is inherently graphical will most likely be a pain to use in a terminal. However, lots of stuff can work pretty nicely: system management, music players, email clients, text editors, file explorers, etc.

      In the end, it’s about finding a good balance between both worlds, in such a way that you feel comfortable with your machine and workflow.
