Console is the easiest way to make a task quickly and
without noise.

Almost all users on this list are not children. Personaly,
I changed all possible colors on my nokia phone to have
something more "no eye candy" to me.

For the first time. After that you already know.

This letter was not intended to me, but I saw no reason not to have
command line on it. Why not?

Poster just said he disliked colors and all that design.
This is device for children/people/others and we all do
understand that. My usage of 770 is not what nokia had in
mind at first. Should I worry. Not a sec. I use command line
and will further, whatever nokia thinks about.
