"That's the same argument as saying that to drive a car you must avoid phrases such as "steering wheel", "gears", "brake", "indicators". If they don't even the fundamental concepts of the device they're using, they really do need to put it back in the box it came in."

Spot on! No idea why you got downvoted. If someone needs to a tool to do their job then they should be taught how to use the tool properly. You'd not expect a typist to not understand what a ribbon, platen or carriage is, would you? Why should PC users be different?
