I'm tired of this idea that if you run Linux you should be able to use the terminal and you must be a developer or hacker. My dad happily uses Linux and he barely knows how to turn on a computer. Some non-techy people just like privacy and freedom.
@micahilbery There's also the benefit of squeezing more life out of an old PC for folks who don't want/can't afford the upgrade mill.
Lubuntu has spared many a relative's PC from the trash heap when Windows security support ended for their OS.
@micahilbery you don't carry your i3config in a memorystick around your neck? n00b pl0x.
@micahilbery if he's running any type of debian variant do him a favor and install the unattended-upgrades package to keep his system regularly patched and updated
I went for the first 10 years on Linux happily ignorant of the command line. Now I like it but it's very true that you don't need to use it.
@micahilbery As long as the person uses it enjoys doing so, that's all that matters.
Though, I will say that using it casually can lead to a great exploration in learning a lot of technical concepts over time.
