Are you recommending this?
Im brimming with good ideas, but Im not a programmer yet. At most Ive taken some digital graphic design and absorbed info on Linux forums. Ive gotten a lot of support for my idea.
The app suggested to me is actually pretty cool, but its not the full scope of what I envisioned. I want it to be really user friendly and for everything to work without a keyboard in the later stages.....all touch screen and hand gestures, and with nothing but that you can create applications or run virtually every terminal command, or if you trust somebody they can write you a script and package for this application, sending it by email no bigger than an .sh document + the wrapper, and if written properly with no unexpected hiccups it should do everything the noob was afraid of doing.
Or if you are really good at the command line but have sloppy fingers and have lots of typos, you just need to do it right once and you can insert commands as fast as you can drag and drop.....maybe a animated flip book like a phone number book for tablets and meego phones.
Even if you dont have trouble with this command line, this could really speed things up for you and allow you to get more done faster. It could use branching pop-ups, totally optional to your taste, to narrow down the command you want, even if you dont know what command you are looking for....maybe an entire encyclopedia of commands could be in there.
Maybe it could be an external app that loads from USB unto an already installed installation.
I really think this is going to be the future. The command line is powerful, but we can retain 100% of its power while making is accessible to the 60th percentile, while making it even faster for experts.
