Re: terminal --silent option

Bt it is a bad semantic in having "hidden features". This may be a
Microsoft method (which I really hate), but not more.

If I offer a feature, then in the correct way. If I want to have
"restricted" access, then password or similar features can be used.

The only thing to discuss is perhaps the message "press any key ...",
but this is another topic.

With friendly regards
