It is when they start to use Git seriously and type them a lot.

If that was such a significant factor, nobody would use Java with it's horribly long function names.

People are far more bothered about all the switches to remember and the options for them than they are the fact that they have to type entire words.

The complaints tend to be far more about how there are inconsistancies
between commands, or they don't understand what's happening.

Yes, but you don't see anybody trying to improve those, do you?

This is low-hanging fruit we can actually change.
