 UI Breakthrough-Command Line Interfaces

The new GUI is ... a command line.

"What is to replace the GUI? Ah yes, journalists are constantly asking me that question, hoping I will speak of virtual reality implants by which we fly effortlessly through hyperspaces, finding just the items of interest, then immediately packaging and caressing it to do our bidding in reports, diagrams, and instant insights of wisdom. Well, the answer is much simpler, and already here: it is search. The real surprise, though, is that search engines have migrated to becoming answer engines, controlled through a modern form of command line interface."
