as a more experienced user I know one can navigate much more quickly using a terminal than using the hunt and peck style of most file system GUIs
As an experienced user, this claim strikes me as false.
I often start in a graphical file manager (nothing special, Nautilus on my system, or any conventional file explorer elsewhere), then use "Open in Terminal" from the context menu, precisely because of how much more efficient desktop file browsers are for navigating directory hierarchies in comparison.
NB: use of a graphical file browser doesn't automatically preclude keyboard-based navigation.

For a given predictor (say x1), the associated beta coefficient (b1) in the logistic regression function corresponds to the log of the odds ratio for that predictor.
If the odds ratio is 2, then the odds that the event occurs (event = 1) are two times higher when the predictor x is present (x = 1) versus x is absent (x = 0).
