Bug Description

Terminal is a default app on Ubuntu, but is not intuitive, is not user-friendly and is focus on developers. Terminal it's a bug in the learning curve of using a default app in Ubuntu. It's too advanced for use on common users.
The developer (or advanced user) can install the app from the Software Center.

It's like saying Windows' Command Prompt is too advanced for most users.

Anybody can learn to use the CLI (command line interface), perhaps it's time for bloggers to better explain to do things in Linux properly, without giving away commands like recipes.
