We have a number of such folks at work too. I guess no one held their
hands and showed them the power of the terminal before. Needless to
say, a few demonstrations is almost always sufficient for them to
realize what they have been missing and they usually change their
workflow and start using the terminal by their own will.

I believe the main reason for this is that Windows does not ship with
a decent terminal, and most of these folks grew up with Windows.
Hopefully, this will change.
