onebuck I understand where you are coming from, do you cook over an open camp fire and in an oven made from rock and mud? Some people think that newbies should start with LFS with no GUI and pass a certification test before using.

Yes I do! Really use a cowboy grill and a oven.

But, I agree that a newbie would use a GUI easier than a command line. Some should learn to use something other than a mouse pointer. That's the window mindset talking. GUIs' have their place but they are not always the best way to configure or use a system.
I never said anything about using LFS nor certification. Get off the M$ bandwagon.

I really think that too many people jump without doing any research of any kind. This service society set is getting ridiculous!

I rather leave the user to make up his/her mind.

Just put terminal editor like "vi" or a "gedit" or "kwrite" fired up from a root console on the table for he/she to choose from.

Only after learning to use both then one can draw a sensible conclusion.

I kind like to use both.
