I’m not an avid proponent of terminalless systems, but I concede that there are some people who would rather live without it. If you’re one of those people (I am not) then you might be interested in a thread I found while screening tutorials for the Tutorial of the Week (you do know about that, don’t you?).
This is the GUI Fan Club, which isn’t really a club so much as a long list of ways to avoid using the terminal. Some of the tips are rather esoteric (like how to rapid scroll in Synaptic ) but others are substitutions for terminal commands in the shape of GUI interfaces, which allow you to get the same thing done, without lifting your hand from the mouse.
I will admit there are some good ideas on that list, and if I didn’t have a gut-level revulsion to the thought of a terminalless system, I might actually try a few. But aside from that comment, I think I will try not to prejudice anyone who might be looking for ideas on a fully graphical Linux system.
So take a look, and see if anything there appeals to you. Remember, you can take away ideas from any experience, and put them to work for yourself. That is what it means to be an eclectic.
