    It's terminal, used for many things. Just like cmd for Windows and terminal for mac.

    If you don't know what it is, you probably have no use for it. It was much more of a necessity in the 1.x and 2.x days for the common user who had to follow some guides.

    eh, not really. while Terminal is good to have around, you're better off performing a command line rescue operation with an SSH session, because the device itself may not fully boot or the terminal app may not be accessible.

    learn UNIX, and uses for Terminal will become apparent.
