    [quote user="anonymous234"]Remember this thing? I really wish it had gone somewhere: Yes, you can emulate it with a tablet or touchscreen, but it's not the same as actual keys.[/quote] Those are Cherry ML switches. You may consider this a blessing or a curse; a lot of people complain about off-angle binding with those (the ...

    [quote user="jmfridey"]  Hi All, It took me a while to cut this one down. I created a blog post on my website with detailed instructions and links to the updates you'll need to download. It'll take you about 10 minutes and you should have Windows Updates working ...

It's how programs talk to each other, locally (and someone must have used this feature at some point) over a network, and how the operating system delivers high-level messages such as instructions to open or print documents, or quit. It's like a ...

    [quote user="dkf"]That's what the manual is for; remembering all the little details so you don't have to. To find things in the manual, use apropos or look online (of course).[/quote] That's the whole point. In a GUI, the computer tells you what you can do, and gives you an obvious means to do it.

[quote user="j_p"]I guess the biggest problems with it would be that programs ...

    [quote user="j_p"]That solution is just as vulnerable to UI changes as CLI-style interfaces, and it isn't as powerful.[/quote] It's a lot more interesting than you imagine. The technologybuilt into the OS since the early 90sis called the Open Scripting Architecture, which maps human-language terminology to binary IPC message ...
