Hello Neil,

never found a need for them.

Same here.  I've never used awk or sed myself.  grep OTOH, I have used,
but only occasionally.

Similarly, SSH:  Until there was more than one machine in the house, I
had no need for it.

As I have mentioned, I have a desktop computer and a laptop. Wife and daughter each have a laptop. I look after all of them. I have no problem dealing with any of those machines. If necessary I go to my wife's desk and do whatever is necessary to the actual laptop. Likewise, my daughter will bring her laptop to the house if I need to make any changes to it. I have no need of SSH.

Also, like you, I don't use sed or awk. Just very occasionally I use grep, and then I have to look up how to do it.

I suppose it depends on what you use your computer for,
