Tired of OSX telling you what you can and cannot do ? Use the command line.Apr 28
The great thing about OSX (and all Apple technology for that matter) is that there aren’t a lot of buttons you can press. This makes for simplicity and ease of use. For stark designs and intuitive interactions with technology. And that’s great. Until you feel the urge to customize something or want to change a certain setting. Guess what ? In good old Windows we had tons of buttons to press , but in OSx ? No buttons.. just sheer frustration ! Time to slit your throat with a blunt usb thumbdrive ? No ! There is hope. OSX is built on a Unix core , thus underneath all that shiny mac-ness hides the terminal .. and that very terminal allows you do dive deeper into the center of your operating system then you thought possible. We don’t need to stinkin buttons ! Just open up the command line, choose your worst frustration or deepest desire from the list and Copy Paste.
