    Do you use the command line regularly?

    People say it's optional. I'm curious how many people use the command line regularly. Or I just wanted to post a silly poll, either way.

    If I am on a Unix system and being productive, I'll always have at least one terminal window open.

    I worked on mainframes, for my home PC I went from DOS to W2K, I prefer a command line interface.

    You'll probably find this a fairly one sided poll.

    Only when everything fails that is no GUI nothing only a blinking cursor. Happen to me once and lost in CLI and format the whole thing. So I think I better start learning. Just in case.

    I use it daily most of the time. On my Mac, I keep it ready to use as well.

    I use it at least once every time I turn on the computer. I suppose I've just got into the habit of using it. It's handy to know for when stuff crashes.
    Please, people, remember to BACKUP before you install that new system. Same if you're upgrading.

    All the time. I use commands and script so much that I ended up creating a Firefox extension, called FoxRunner, that allows to run commands from forum posts, send selected text from web sites as variables to scripts, run commands from the status bar and context menu. So basically, my Firefox sidebar is always open with FoxRunner.

    I use it since I was once familiar with it, and sometimes I compile from source when there's a really new project out I wanna' examine a bit. But for the most part, I never use it, just know how to use it, and I'm grateful it's not watered down.
