Re: It's gotten better.
" It ran to nearly twelve pages (printed from the browser) and half of that was command-line gibberish that made no sense to me (so yay for the chance to mistype something)."
I assume you're like my wife, who drives a car and also uses Linux. She hasn't got a clue to using the command line nor anything past putting petrol in.
She wouldn't have a clue about using the command line in Windows either, but she could go to a document and cut and paste from a web page.
