If command-line tools were considered acceptable for use by young learners,
we wouldn't have Sugar in the first place. But they're not. What's more,
command line tools are largely seen as unacceptable for the majority of
computer users, whether young learners or not.

I'm truly befuddled why this is even a question, and I say this as someone
who spends more time than most in a command line.
