It's called a Tool(bar) Window. Any windows that have the WS_EX_TOOLWINDOW extended style will be rendered without a system menu or minimize/maximize boxes, and a small titlebar. In Windows XP and up (that support themes), tool windows are usually rendered without rounded corners (at least with the default themes). This style is usually used for toolbars (...

I would suspect that they do. I don't believe that text-based browsers will (by default) even download resources such as images or external entities, such as fonts (if needed), scripts, etc. I did some basic testing with tcpdump trying to get this IANA page (http://www.iana.org/domains/reserved) with both lynx and then wget, and here were my results (HTTP ...

/etc/launchd.conf has never existed by default, but it does still work in 10.9. Run for example sudo nano /etc/launchd.conf. Add a line like setenv JAVA_HOME /System/Library/Java/JavaVirtualMachines/1.6.0.jdk/Contents/Home. (I don't know what JAVA_HOME should actually be set to though.) Either restart or run launchctl < /etc/launchd.conf; sudo launchctl ...

This details the name of this window style and the options available in .NET; see @Synetech's excellent answer for the original purpose of this window style, the reasons it may be used for such a dialog box and the implementation in unmanaged Windows programs such as Notepad++.

I am appalled at the misinformation in the accepted answer. While I have no experience with the ActionTec P5001a, I do have experience with half a dozen similar devices, and they all work the same way when in bridged mode. When it's in bridge mode it has no web interface, no IP. Wrong. It has the same default IP address (192.168.0.1) and the same web ...

Look at htop. It's light and it'll do what you want. Yes, it does launch in a console, but you can interact with it using the mouse, it's colored, it's live/animated, you can click on column headers to sort, scroll with the mouse, and anything else you care to try.

vim is designed for using the keyboard efficiently, not for using the mouse. thus, i find your complaint about a bad "gui" a bit awkward. if you do not like vim or if you do not want to learn how things are done in vim, thats just fine. but then you have to use another editor because vim just does not match your requirements. so, i doubt there will be any ...

The terminal interface works even if you don't have X available, e.g. when working over ssh from a machine where you don't want to install Emacs, or to repair your X config, or on a hardware text terminal.
