The problem with the command line I've found is that people don't know
what they're looking at or what the commands they're copying and pasting

The first problem could probably be fixed by a simple cli which reports
the success of a command and only plagues the user with information when
there has been a problem.

The second problem is more difficult. Short of making the computer
sentential able to explain any command or teaching every user what
commands are for.
