Having shells running, and having 2-3 shells start between a request and the
result is not quite the same thing, don't you think?

Having shells running for file editing? Sorry, what year you are living in?

That's your choice. Email client and browser is about all GUI apps I use
daily. Oh, wait. A download client is GUI too.
The rest is console. (Google "Far manager" one day. That's my #1, #2 and #3
tool for any given task. Except those two mentioned above.)

And yes, it do counts as a shell. By definition.

I know. Doesn't change my reply even a single bit.
Morale is a relative category. If YOUR understanding of "morale" includes a
given set of characteristics, this doesn't mean that everyone's definition of
"morale" includes the same set of characteristics.
What YOU considering "moral equivalent" may not be the case for someone else.
