Now I'm talking to the users that use, userfriendly operating systems like Mac OS and Windows. Now Mac OS while built ontop of Unix is very userfriendly and the terminal kind of just get's hidden after each release but still will always be available. Now MS killed DOS in 2001, what your Command Line is now is nothing more than the MSDOS emulator and it's kinda limited... Powershell or Powerbash is what many Windows users use to get that terminal like experience back but it still fails.
Now Linux is gaining ground, but not the distros that are meant for the geeks who know how to use a terminal or know the their hardware but distros that are userfriendly like Ubuntu. If MS ever faded out or just lost a bit of share Ubuntu is what would be put onto business PCs unless it was either Red Hat, SUSE but not to be confused with OPENSuse, or CentOS if they wanted a free version of red hat linux. Red hat is free but the support will cost you an arm and a leg, I don't have this need as I know RHEL.
Today kids just want to play games, pop in a disk and install and off you go into a great adventure but are computers teaching kids to be complete idiots with computers? Or are they helping them learn about what the computer is really about, what it's meant to do and how to actually use it IE no gui.
Show a terminal to a PCGamer and his reactions would be, you still use that? Get with with the 21st century man.. of course he has no idea what he's talking about, and terminals are used to manage servers and high load workstations something he just does not understand.
Show that to a geek and he'll probably go ape shit over it.
So, are computers making the users dumber with them or are users becoming more knowledgeable about the computer?
