Only a true master can understand the CLI
I missed this, but the second chapter of Ubunchu! has been out for a bit. The original manga by Hiroshi Seo has been "open sourced", like its subject matter, into different language translations. It's pretty accessible, with the characters mostly conforming to type. The Windows guy is a cranky gamer set in his ways. The Mac user is an open-minded but naive comic book fan. And the Linux guru is smart, but a Command Line zealot. Krishna has also been touching on the same topic in his recent strips. This chapter contains the only attempt I'm aware of to explain the command pipe to laypeople in comic form.
