I think the real reason why people think using the terminal is required on Linux is a direct result of the Linux terminal being so much better than the Windows terminal

  • terminal

    The new Windows Terminal and the original Windows console host, all in the same place!

    The current version of the Windows terminal is not bad. And Powershell does have some advantages. The object-orientation, for example, I definitely see as an advantage.

  • git-cola

    git-cola: The highly caffeinated Git GUI

    i still don't know how to split one commit into multiples (without going insane (if it's even possible)) without a gui like https://github.com/git-cola/git-cola, and that should be a simple operation (especially with git's "split every change into individual commits make it easier to cherry pick" conventions)

  • bat

    A cat(1) clone with wings.

    I like to use bat for this. Try setting it as your MANPAGER and using it to colorize your ` --help outputs.

  • tealdeer

    A very fast implementation of tldr in Rust.

    Also be sure to check out tldr pages for those moments when the full manual feels overwhelming to you. (I recommend tealdeer as the client to use). Don't forget that you can use your pager to search through manpages, either! Hit the / key, type EXAMPLES and hit enter to skip right to the EXAMPLES section, if there is one.
