Good idea. It's not that I don't want to learn GUI, but coming from Web
related fields I'm taking it one step at a time, while learning Unix
(editors, shell, filesystem hierarchy, etc.).

All of this had been obscured by 'Apple's lifestyle'. It's been less than a
year since I realized I had so much powerful software around.

I'll start with Python documentation. If in any trouble, I'll get to you.
