I agree with every one of you that the CLI is very important and I 
personally I am not afraid it would be too difficult for beginners to 
use commands in the terminal. Perhaps it would be a good idea to add 
this tip: you can copy (from a web page) and paste the command in the 
terminal. This is to avoid errors like "l" and "1", "O" and "0".
