I've used various distros for a few years, greatly favoring those based on Debian because I've grown accustomed to APT.
As a side fun project I'd like to load a box with a GUI-less CLI-only Debian as a usable desktop. That's easy enough, but my concern is finding CLI apps that aren't a pain to use.
From experience and some searching, here are the apps I plan to use:
EMAIL: Mutt (haven't tried it yet) WEB BROWSER: Lynx (used it a little in the 90s) SYS MON: htop, nmon (I use these all the time currently) PANDORA: pianobar (used it a little a couple years ago)
Three questions: 1. Do you know of any better substitutes to the above apps? 2. Is it possible to view an image in CLI? (in case I get email attachments) 3. Any fun CLI games?
Thanks for any feedback, tips, and gotchas.

Hello, never posted here before so I am sorry if this is in incorrect format. I'm on my phone and cannot see the side bar.
Anyway, I'm going back to school in the fall after getting a worthless degree the last time I went to college. I am going for information technology and one of the classes that is required in Linux. I'm not sure where to start to learn it. Is there a book I can buy or any videos for beginners that would help me get my feet wet before I just jump into it? Or any tips you all have would be greatly appreciated.submitted by Anonymous_titty_bang

The first time I heard the word “coopetition” (“cooperation” and “competition” combined)... I wanted to kill it with fire. But the idea… the idea is a glorious one.
