"I honestly don't think this shell is intended for users at all. It's for scripters."

And scripters aren't users nor users, scripters.

Correct. I know you were being sarcastic, but you're wrong. Scripters are not users, they're more aptly named administrators; especially in the Windows world.
Makeing a 6 line script does not make you a "scripter," it makes you a power user. Power users also aren't "users", they're a subset/superclass of users.
When you say "user" in this context, you mean Joe Schmoe using Joe Blow's Office Program. Not, Joe Power fixing Joe Blow's Office Program ;) .
