The terminal isn't as difficult as it's made out to be
People are sometimes afraid of Linux because they associate Linux with a command line window or a terminal. And while it's true a lot of things can be done in a terminal window, these days most tasks can also be done graphically. Why use a terminal at all then if most jobs can be done graphically? The terminal uses fewer resources to accomplish the same task. The terminal is also almost always a faster way to do the same job.
