I just recently installed Ubuntu on my machine several days ago. From just getting used to it, it looks like the terminal is a huge part of the Linux distro. But should I be really using the terminal? Don't the commands go through the GUI anyway? Thanks for the help.

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

We cannot tell you what or what not to use except of our own personal experiences. As with a car, the use of one OS from another is a personal preference. For Ubuntu, yes, you can go the GUI route and you can go the CLI route, it is personal preference. Those that do not feel comfortable with CLI use the GUI, but like windows, it is the same. An icon executes a command in the OS.
