Tuomas reported recently that he was able to do a complete
installation of Linux and Ximian GNOME without using a terminal.

There are still areas where this could improve, and I would love to
have a few days of `No terminals for me' just to try to find out what
kinds of things I am missing.

Tuomas tried this for a few days, and he did submit a few bug reports
to maintainers on things they could do to improve their applications.

Maybe we can collect a `top 10 reasons to use a shell' and try to
address those?
