The Hotwire shell removes the complexities of interactive consoles. We’ll show you how to Hotwire your Linux with this handy text and graphical shell for developers and administrators.

Hotwire is an intelligent, hybrid text and graphical shell for developers and administrators . According to developer Colin Walters, Hotwire “… is intended to replace the interactive command-line portion of a typical Unix shell.” Hotwire combines the functions of a terminal window, a shell, and many of the familiar command-line utilities. One interesting feature of Hotwire is its ability to separate input and output streams. But is Hotwire truly more than just a shell? I decided to investigate.
