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.
Thanks to some awesome community contributions, Pinafore has some cool new features!
- Keyboard shortcuts (thanks Stephane Zermatten!)
- Long posts are automatically CW'ed (thanks Will Pearson!)
- Themes are now labeled as "dark" or "light" (thanks Nathan Minchow!)
You can see the list of keyboard shortcuts by typing "?" or "h". They can also be disabled in the settings.

Wow, according to that article only 1.5 to 2.2%. A very poor performance.
The only bright spot is with the developer segment:
Where the tech insiders lead perhaps others will follow. maybe.
