Interesting if you think about it in that offices started out with typewriters, accounting worksheets with a calculator nearby, and file cabinets. We still have the same equipment, but they have evolved a bit.

First the typewriter became a command line editor, file cabinet became the database, and the spreadsheet/calculator combination became the early spreadsheet. You had to do a lot of typing to do everything you wanted to do from a command line interface.

The eventually the mouse was invented and the graphical use interface was created to take advantage of it.

Yet we are still doing the same old thing, but just in a different way. Another comparison could me made that hand painted billboards, mass mailings, and hand made newspapers went to desktop publishing and then were replaced by web pages.

Anyway you get the idea…….

Good day.
