kibitz allows two (or more) people to interact with one shell (or any arbitrary program). Uses include:

  • ·By running kibitz and then starting a full-screen editor, people may carry out a conversation, retaining the ability to scroll backwards, save the entire conversation, or even edit it while in progress.
  • ·People can team up on games, document editing, or other cooperative tasks where each person has strengths and weaknesses that complement one another.
