Agree. Show most people that your typing anything on a black screen with white text (e.g a simple cmd command) and they think your an international hacker secret agent (maybe to far, but you get my point).But its something all computers have the ability to do, like you say most people just dont use it

This is why I didn't even have to expend effort to get CompTIA A+, but hardly anyone managed to pass MCITP in the time we had. Windows 7 is more user friendly, yet so much more complex.
