From the command line you can also use TAB completion. As long as you are in the correct directory you can start typing the long filename and press the "tab" key and it will complete the filename. You can also drag and drop files to the terminal and it will write in the path and file name. I know for sure it works in xfce4-terminal and I would think these features are available in other terminals using bash.

Typing file names can take too long. That's why the good ol' Spatry has binded Ctrl+g to select the files via yet another dialog UI and put their path(s) into terminal. This is near the top of his ~/.bashrc file, just bellow the function that starts the happy penguin song. ;)

select_files() {
OIFS=$IFS
IFS=$'\n'
local files=" $(for line in $(yad --file-selection --multiple --title="Select a File" --separator='\n' --width=800 --height=650 2> /dev/null | tr '|' ' '); do printf "'%s' " "$line"; done)"
IFS=$OIFS
READLINE_LINE="${READLINE_LINE:0:READLINE_POINT}$files${READLINE_LINE:READLINE_POINT}"
READLINE_POINT=$((READLINE_POINT + ${#files}))
}
bind -x '"\C-g":select_files'
Once you edit and save the ~/.bashrc, you need to restart the terminal. Finaly press ctrl+g. The file paths are there, ready to be used.

I learn from you too! I just sent a message to Mulder and Scully... They are coming for you carrying a nice snug straitjacket... You will get Class A accommodations at the nearest RUBBER ROOM! HAH!

now now Helga, don't be making promises you can't keep!

Considering how the world is today, I think a nice rubber room might be just about the perfect vacation

I haven't seen it, probably never will.  However, my view of IoT needs no more evidence than the Android ecosystem where you have millions of older devices that haven't seen updates in YEARS.  Devices are released with vulnerabilities and never see any sort of update, I've had devices that NEVER  saw an update in spite of the fact that I knew they had vulnerabilities that could be exploited.  That's why I never keep anything important on my phone and treat it as completely disposable.

If some enterprising troublemaker wanted to cause complete chaos, they could probably shut down half of the internet simply by hijacking IoT devices.

the stroy line is pretty twisted, but enjoyable.

Mulder and Scully go to a fully automated sushi restaurant. The thing serves Mudler a blobfish instead of what he ordered.

He puts his card in to pay and the thing won't release his card, so he bangs on the counter, and it warns him not to bang but still wont release his card. Meanwhile it keeps sending friend requests and tip requests to their phones, which they ignore.

The restaurant doesn't want to let them out when they finally decide to give up on getting Mulder's credit card back. Some kind of self driving Uber arrives for Scully and takes her home, only it plays music really loud and won't drive at a reasonable speed, and Mulder's GPS keeps sending him back to the restaurant.

When Scully gets home her alarm system won;t stop going off, her TV and sound system keep playing at full volume, she receives a drone package of an automatic robot vacuum that starts smashing stuff and spying on her...

Meanwhile Fox vcan't get through to his credit card company either on his phone or online, then little quadcopter drones begin invading his house.

Eventually they meet back up when Scully's house explodes because the gas fireplace3 turns on and she barely gets out through a plate glass patio door.

They are chased halfway across the city by drones, and end up in an automatic factory (al la Terminator) after ditching all their ph9ones and other devices in a garbage can. The automatic factory tries to kill then and they end up locked in an office or science lab. Finally a robot enters, holding their phones.

Mulder takes his phone from the robot when it offers it, and it is warning him he's only got 15 seconds left to give a tip to the restaurant... he finally gives a tip and all the machines go back to acting normal, except the robot says as it is leaving "We Learn From You"

From a computing power standpoint, desktops are a much better proposition, not to mention you can actually repair the things when something goes wrong.  Don't get me wrong, I enjoy my laptop and do a lot with it, but for serious work (and gaming) it's hard to compete with a desktop.

While I do prefer the portability of a notebook, I will consider a desktop option.
