It’s hard to believe that many of us started learning computers before there was any kind of GUI, or Graphical User Interface. We existed on the command line. It took the release of Win 95 to get me away from the Command Line.
When we talk about a command line vs GUI, we’re talking about interfacing with a computer with some kind of text prompt. This is where you don’t have anything to click on, you would have to type in text. GUI is basically like a set of icons or pictures. So keeping this in mind, I came across Goosh the other day. Goosh is basically the unofficial Google shell. Imagine if Google existed on a command line only. That is exactly what you get on this website. Goosh is written by Stefan Grothkopp, and it is NOT an official google product!
So you basically have some text, and then a blinking cursor. Basically you’re going to type in the type or search, such as Wiki or News… or just put in your keywords. Bang there you go! It brings up your search results. If you type in Clear, it will clear the screen. You can keep searching all day long. Why would you want to do this? It’s fun! It’s nostalgic! It’s just nice and clean, and simple.
Try this out. It’s a website, not an application or anything you need to download. It’s different and fun. I promise that if you’re a Geek, you’ll be entertained.
