... it won't help you actually understand anything about how the system works.

The vast majority of people do not want to learn how the system works. Only nerds want to do that. The vast majority of people want to use a computer and maybe they want to use it to learn something else (e.g. a spoken language), but when you make that task more complicated by having them learn how the system works, they are put off.

Make sure your code does nothing gracefully.
