why should you write CLI & terminal software in 2019?

well, there are plenty of reasons, but a really good one is that desktop computing is in a state of relentless decline (backed by megacorp fiat that it be murdered ASAP) and the terminal will still be cockroaching along decades after it's impossible to use any of the GUI paradigm stuff that worked just fine in like 1998-2010.

I wrote up some Opinions™ about iterating on the protocol and how we can continue improving it without sacrificing compatibility or fracturing the network: jeremydormitzer.com/blog/activ. Comments welcome here or on the post.

Wow, according to that article only 1.5 to 2.2%. A very poor performance.
The only bright spot is with the developer segment:
Windows: 49.4%
MacOS: 27.4%
Linux: 23.0%
BSD/Unix: 0.2%
Where the tech insiders lead perhaps others will follow. maybe.

@russsaidwords I would've tried that too, but someone already wrote a CLI client:
github.com/ihabunek/toot
You can also browse your timline from the CLI... pretty nice.
