You think some people who don't know the command line would want to buy 
hardware to learn about it but not rely on it?

I think some people buy it but ignore the "but not rely on it" part - 
because after playing with it (i.e. clicked on the web interface - they 
don't know the command line) they conclude that if feels reliable enough 
despite the warnings.

I think it is a bad idea to sell something that is not yet ready, to 
someone who don't understand what that means:  We are all so very used 
to reading and ignoring disclaimers.

Good luck with your projects,

 - Jonas
