One of them is a file manager that was designed for text mode, but it can be used in GUI too. It is good old Midnight Commander.

Once user overcomes initial learning how to handle basic operations, and that is really minimal effort, it will stay addicted to *mc* forever. The article is not meant as copy of F1 (help) key, but just as a simple introduction with more on subpages. One subpage is already there

Please review article and give comments what can be added/changed to make it even more usable.
I would add something into the HOWTO about opening files that require a GUI from an XTerm or terminal ie using an xterm i open mc and navigate to the OOo file I want to edit. How can I open that selected file in OOo? The same would apply if I opened a termainal with Ctrl-Alt-F4, opened mc, navigated to the file. How could I open it in the GUI screen from mc, provided of course that I am already logged in on the GUI(Ctrl-Alt-F7).
