Hey, are you looking over my shoulder? :) As I said, I work mostly the same
way I learned it 10 years ago. It's really a lot like a Unix GUI -
is available through the CLI, some things are available through menus, and
things are available through icons. The spacebar/enter functionality
is one of my favorites - one that apparently newer users aren't taught. Oh,
the "up arrow" key cycles through previous commands, like some Unix shells.
