Teacher foo discusses graphical user interface

One of the evenings, the teacher Foo and Nubi spent in the company of programmers - they met to learn from each other. One programmer asked Nubi which school he and his teacher Foo belong to. Contempt appeared on the programmer's face when he heard that they were followers of the Great Unix Way.

“Unix console applications are crude and orthodox,” he quipped. "Modern, well-designed operating systems do everything through a graphical interface."

Teacher Foo silently pointed to the moon. A nearby dog ​​barked at the owner's hand.
“I don't understand!” Said the programmer.

Teacher Foo continued to be silent and pointed to the image of the Buddha, and then to the window.

“What do you want to tell me?” Asked the programmer.

Teacher Foo pointed to the programmer’s head, and then to the stone.

“Why can't you say it clearly?” Asked the programmer.

Teacher Foo frowned thoughtfully, tapped the programmer on the nose twice and threw it into the nearest dumpster.

While the programmer was trying to get out of the garbage can, they wandered around the dog urinating on him.

At this point, the programmer reached enlightenment.

A clue to understanding this revelation may be another short revelation: “The mind is like a dog. The owner points to the moon, but she barks at hand. ”

The translation of the previous part was published more than two years ago, I hope, now I will publish them more often :)
