Why use terminal?
Authored by: Anonymous on Mar 22, '01 07:46:41AM
One Reason to use the Terminal is the fact, that the GUI may crash, preventing you from seing your mouse cursor, etc.

I had such situations when Classic Apps that ran in Full screen@256 colors (old games) crashed. the color table is sometimes modified and you can't really access your system via gui. However, over a LAN, you can still log in and kill the offending process.
