Well that's not completely wrong.
Tell me how many people install/use/maintain an Arch system without
ever touching the command line ?
The kde+qt vs gnome+gtk separation doesn't help either for having a
coherent and consistent GUI experience.
Even Ubuntu documentation contains some occasional commands lines,
e.g. random example :
A lot of ubuntu guide/tutorial often relies on the command line as well.
However all the big distrib have indeed made a lot of effort to
provide more and more GUI for every aspect of the system, and it
improved a lot in the last years. I don't know if a stupid compiz
effect is a good illustration of that progress, but well.
Anyway while it's true you can do a lot via a GUI on
ubuntu,fedora,suse,etc nowadays, what would Linux be without its great
and powerful CLI ?
I spend a lot of times every day using a linux terminal, and I just
love it. I miss it a lot every time I am forced to use windows.
