Most of the time it involves copy-paste, as opposed to typing.

The only typing would be to input your password for "sudo".

I find this much faster than following directions on what menus to open in Windows (version dependent, not to mention language dependent).

Granted, I know the shell well enough to be able to identify if the command line is legit. This is where trusted sources of advice comes in. (Not that different from when using Windows. Don't do whatever someone on YouTube says will be great.)
