GUI vs. Command Line, similiarity in tools

Filed under

My first long-term job was Unix programming.

Thats way I prefer the command line tools.

I think GUI does not have real performance in tasks of programmer, also GUI skills can not be reused when you need automate your task you done before by clicking.

If you typed instead, you can put your typing in the script and make the script working for any count of times.

However I found in my practice some cases when GUI was better than command line for development.

1) Development of GUI
I have experience of the development of tools for the internet trading, that were mouse based and highly interactive. And visual tools for visual development were really much progress in comparison to writing code for forms definition. In such RAD tools for the GUI, GUI interface and the visual development environment is the must.

Wine Staging: Release 1.7.52

Some minutes ago we released Wine Staging 1.7.52. This is the first release after WineConf 2015 and the integration into WineHQ. Some of the changes related to the integration have been realized in the meantime and you should now use the WineHQ bug tracker for reporting bugs. Just open them as regular Wine bugs and mention the used wine version. Although this news is mostly about the source code changes, I would like to mention that Arch Linux now provides an official package which is also named wine-staging and therefore conflicts with our packages. The package installs into /usr instead of /opt/wine-staging so you might run into conflicts with other wine versions. Take a look at our Wiki for more information. Read more
