This is a question that has always intrigued me. Mac OS X is an incredibly powerful OS. Much of this is due to its Unix base. So when I see people say things like, I don't want to use the Terminal I'm left feeling a bit perplexed. Yes, you can damage your system if you do not know what you are doing with specific commands. But that can be remedied by simply typing man *command* to bring up the documentation for that specific command. Is there a specific reason for this fear of the command line in the Mac community? I'm just interested to know why people do not want to use it who then complain that the GUI does not do what they want. Most if not all the complaints I read about tools such as Spotlight could be fixed if people just used the Terminal and Unix tools like Grep.
