Funny ;)

It's funny that people consider typing commands to be "old-fashioned"
because pointing with a mouse is the stone-age device; typing was only
invented in the 19th century ;)  

Xerox PARC (not Apple nor MIcrosoft) excelled in helping computers fit
in to how people already lived, not the other way around.
