Infomercial time?

Back in the last century many women end users found that using the UNIX tools was really as easy as writing out event orders for a parties, and managing a household, so I hope many of you read and enjoy this series.
Cringe!
Sure - and we all enjoyed our hot date: Dinner At Home.

Mind you - the strategy of describing the lin/unix cli commands as "power tools" is kinda neat and one I am bound to steal later, however, this seems to be aimed at a specific product.

The product in question adds a gui interface to the traditional shell. The effect seems to be to make shell scripting more complex than just typing. So I guess you've lost me on this one.
