In a terminal I expect to know the name of the command or what it starts 
with anyway. In a GUI application search, things are different. The GUI 
menu or search may not even show the real name of the application... 
looking for Nautilus? Easy to find in the terminal, but look for "files" 
in the GUI. Nautilus when it is running, shows the name "Files" in it's 
about box! You may find searching for a "terminal" gives two or three 
terminals all named "Terminal" with very simmilar icons, but most of us do 
not want Xterm... Speaking searching for a terminal, the default terminal 
may or may not show up  :)
