There are some things you can only do from the command line, even on Windows. Some of these tools don’t have graphical equivalents, while others are just plain faster to use than their graphical interfaces.

This is just a weird trick I learned so I decided to post this. You can watch most of the beginning of the first Star wars movie, which is episode IV from command prompt. It's pretty cool...

There is a complete copy of Star Wars done entirely in ASCII characters that you can watch in the Windows operating system (or any OS that supports telnet). The only thing required to watch it is an internet connection; speed does not matter.
