Yes, most *nix-like users use the shell every day but there's a big
difference between using the shell to do the odd chmod or chown and
using it to it's maximum potential.

I use Photoshop to resize and crop images on a regular basis but that's
never going to make me a graphic designer and my day-to-day doesn't
really bring me into contact with either Photoshop or Bash experts :/

That commandlinefu site is a great tip BTW, thanks :)
