Yeah, in some ways it resembles bash/sh/make.

The average windows-user (like my 84-year old mother) might be thick, but
you make it sound like the average windows-programmer (the user, as you
call him) is just as thick.

Having said that, there are (installed) menu-items that do help to select
(click for the thick) the correct environment, so the user doesn't f-up.
There is nothing to type, other than cd to the correct folder.
