Command Line and GUI

Here's a NewsForge article by Lee Schlesinger, in which he dissects Neal Stephenson's 1999 essay "In the Beginning was the Command Line". "This is a key lesson for Linux proponents to learn. Linux is a powerful operating system -- no one argues that. But Linux started out as a difficult operating system for the average person to learn. There are far more average users than expert users out there. To grow the community, Linux must be as simple as possible to work with. A larger group of users benefits both average and expert users, so even experts should support "frills" like GUI utilities and package installation tools."
