Wink Linux Console Programs


Hey Im not exactly new to linux, but I thought it would be nice to post some of the console utilities that we all use. I know that I was totally dependant on KDE and other GUIs for a while. Now I just use the console when ever I can. I think alot of newbies just didnt know you could do all of the stuff you can from console. Like Instant message, check email, surf the web, and just about anything! Here are just a few of the console programs that I use religiously

pine
lynx
w3m
naim
wget
minicom
mc


If you can think of any cool console programs please reply and post em.
