With respect to the post about using the GUI and you don't have to know any Linux I respectfully disagree. You _do_ need (or you should) to know Linux if you're going to use any Linux application proficiently.

For example, let's say you use the GUI app referenced and you don't know Linux;
- How will you identify the target and destination media?
- How will you troubleshoot why a device is not recognized? (Or, perhaps it _is_ recognized by the Linux kernel, only incorrectly or in a manner that you do not recognize)
- How will you articulate what you did and why? (IE, explain what the tool did and how, and why you selected that application (tool))
- Perhaps there is a more efficient way to do what it is you want to do. But how would you know this if you don't know and understand the operating system environment you are working within?

Just some random brain droppings ...
