Reduce usage of GUI

Basic tasks like navigation, editing files and unzipping should not be done using GUI i.e. the use of mouse and window managers is discouraged. Do as much of your work as possible on your terminal - make the terminal your home ;)


Student(s) found violating any of the guidelines or displaying other unsporting behaviour will be subject to disqualification.
