    Well.. I don't want to argue either but here are some things that using the command line/power shell are necessary to getting some things done.

    First example, Installing Beautiful-Soup for Python. There is no other way to get this job done than using the command prompt/power shell

An easy to learn and use point and click OS for beginners, lots to tinker for advanced users, excellent tools for professionals.

    One OS for multiple user segments.

    I was there for the beginning of Windows 3.0, along with all its bugs and crashes. A reboot several times per day was the norm, not the exception. Then came Windows 3.1 (both versions) which was somewhat better. I've been there every step of the way (along with its inherent crashes and bugs) to Windows 10. Beginning with Vista, the crashes and bugs were fewer, but still there and even less in Windows 7.

    Windows 8.0 was a huge setback for me, but I got used to Windows 8.1, although it took three days to land on the app I wanted to use.

    Today, although I'm a tech, I'm mostly a hardware tech. I am, however, comfortable using both my mouse and the command line if I need to.

    I have essentially ignored PowerShell since I've been an Insider, but for some reason, I finally decided to look into installing a bunch of apps all at once. And, boy am I glad I did!

    I will also be exploring other possibilities in PowerShell. Partly because I like learning new things and partly because I can see the convenience of using both parts of Windows; the GUI and the Command Line.
    We kinda all have similar history, except one or two things. I never get into OS-anything, although i was very close to OS2 (almost).

    Started with IBM 1130 as a student, then VAX, Delta and after that PCs. Not for primary thing, just as a tech guy. Windows 3.11 were the first , that we could comfortably work with

    Still, I'm not much of a command line person anymore. Man has to know exactly what to type , and with PShell there is a lot to learn. But I can see a lot of potential for real power user to code a line or two for us who don't have enough time to learn details. And just send us a cmdlet.

    (OK, I will learn this stuff too )

    You could prepare us a script to install it in one line. And a self destructive one, too.

    Not yet Wynona. I still have a job to do. And so little time. Not that I wouldn't like to.

    Since I only need to do that one time I find it easier to just do it that way. It only takes about a minute to work my way there and execute the setup command.

    OK, we'll wait for Kari's second lesson.

    Yes, but you could help some friends, who would need an hour to study it...
