Well, that's the thing.  There was a question there, with perfectly valid

So apparently you *do* know the term.  Normally, to say that a term is
foreign to you is to say that you have no idea what it means, not that
you know what it means but don't use it.

In which case, you're not using a command line, and are using a GUI, and
the other poster's question is answered.

The Google results you cite to are uninteresting and frankly irrelevant.
If someone asks me whether the ornamental fish in my 55-gallon tank is a
koi, that Google has no hits for "ornamental fish in your 55-gallon tank is a
koi" does not mean that the terminology is "strange" or "corrupt".

The terminology was fine.
