Ironically, NeXTSTEP -- the most user friendly OS that has ever existed
-- didn't touch the shell.  Well, they added a registry, rather than
relying as heavily on environment variables, but they were all still
Unix commands.  Maybe the shell is as perfect as it can get, until we
get computers that can understand natural languages?
