I've been working with this idea for awhile...

Someone in the RM Corp has gotten wind of their latest plot, and has realized the scope of their plans to take over the world. She is a bit dubious about Zulander, but wants to help him. She is into programming, and her favourite computer is the old monochrome text-only type, one where code is all she can see, where there's no cloak of fancy graphics, or anything else to hide her from what is real in the program.

She loves the old operating system UNIX, and believes that robots that think are dangerous to humanity. She even hates the BOYZZ.

You like?

Sounds cool.

I wonder how people in 2025 would look back on our day's OSes? I would think old people would still be on board.

It's like I still like using dos to do things although it's sort of deprecated these days. It's just the conveninence of command line. It's sort of a necessity for scripting and stuff so I think that terminal style stuff will be around for a long time now.

I learned how to use Unix in college a couple semesters ago, and it was alot of fun! I loved shell-scripting, and even I, a non-programmer artistic-type who loves Macromedia and The GIMP a little too much, can appreciate the simple ellegance of command-line operating systems, since I was raised on DOS ^^

I guess kids these days raised on a gui might not be so into command line. Time will tell I guess.

She is somewhat old fashioned, like early 21'st century.

Indeed it is. And Unix is fun! I just need some ideas to get the ball rolling. I also have some other ideas, like for banshees and other mythical characters to actually make appearances in my continuation. Or even aliens that look very humanoid... maybe one that was abused by the Corp.
