Okay.  One complaint though.  Your choice of words "... how cheap you 
are" I resent.  I have a rich cousin who *won't* spend money.  He's 
cheap.  I don't *have* money.  That's not called cheap, it's called 
poor.  I am in poverty.  I'm not proud of it, but that's the way it is.  
Another point is that I am not a programmer, nor am I being paid to be a 
programmer.  I am paid for non-computer work that requires a computer to 
perform (text and image-based work).  If I were paid to be a programmer, 
I would hang my head in shame at my ignorance, but for me, the computer 
is not the end, it is the means.  My point regarding "command line" and 
"users" is that I had thought that a person using Linux was a "Linux 
User",  but sometimes it seems as though it's a crime to use the mouse.

Anyway - like I said, I realize I'm a fish out of water or whatever.  I 
apologize for disturbing you.

Best regards,
