Out of curiosity, on which century you've last used end-user oriented Linux distros (like Ubuntu)?
Being an ubuntu user myself, you need to, about once a week or so, and especially everytime you have a problem. Last week I upgraded my graphics card from NVIDIA to NVIDIA and it would only boot to command line, so I had to remove the old nvidia driver and install the new one using command line. However that's an inherent design thing of linux and not something that affects FreeMiNT if you put a command line in it.
I guess from a normal user perspective, you need to use a command line in about 1% of your use case scenario, unfortunately as it happens that's mostly for when you have a system problem and when you want to install something that isn't available in the repos.
