Operating systems : Windows
FTE : JED : MinEd : Nano : MS-DOS Editor
Initially, all text editors did not have a graphical interface. And work with text almost from the outset was one of the main types of user activity on computer. With the invention and spread of low-level and especially high-level programming languages, text editor has become an important working tool of professionals. Then, other users had to use text editors for their daily tasks. So by the time the programs with GUI started to be wide spread, the concept of text editor was already well developed, there were mature, well-designed and implemented specimens of applications for text editing without graphical user interface. Why the text-based versions coexisted with GUI-based ones for very long and still graphical user interface programs have not replaced the console / text-based applications.
While the average user is not aware of their existence, he / she does not know the power of vim or emacs, often even MS-DOS Editor, built in all the 32-bit versions of Windows is unknown, none the less, console text editors continue to exist and be developed. As it is the case with the text web browsers, the main line of text-based text editors development is in Linux and other *nix systems world. But under Windows as well, there are several interesting applications.

Windows version can edit files of up to 5 MB in size.

Also, DOS text editors may be used. Such as SETEDIT, TDE, PEDIT, MultiEdit, EDITV and others.

MPlayer : FFmpeg Media players appeared long ago, but their heyday began with the mass spread of personal computers powerful enough to play video files. This coincided with the mass spread of operating systems and other software with graphical user interface. However, a program with a graphical user interface is dualistic in its nature: there is a code responsible for graphical user interface, for the appearance and there is a code - for performing the task the given application has been created for in the first place. Both code complexes consume system resources, their response time to user actions makes up certain amount of waiting time. And in cases or concepts when appearance is taken as less important - less important to the point of sparing or almost sparing to employ it - console applications, among others, appear. Moreover, the segmentation of the GUI and of the engine makes it easier to change the graphical user interface or perform complex automated operations. The scheme is implemented for media players for Windows as well. MPlayer, for instance, in its usual form is a console application, starting up quickly, having fast response to user actions, consuming system resources almost entirely for its immediate task. And on this basis if desired, one or another graphical interface may be added for creating, all in all, a new application. MPlayer - / home page / Console media player for Windows.
