Have you used the command line lately? Ever given much thought how it came to be?

I'm not surpised - I haven't given it much thought either. But after learning more about the journey the CLI has taken to get us to where we are today, it gives me new appreciation, and understanding, of how the CLI works. Many of the things we do today are rooted in the past, and the CLI is no different. Sit back, relax, and enjoy the origin story of our old friend, the Command Line.
