I agree that every interface has its uses, and that includes the CLI. I didn't mean to imply that the CLI was in some way "bad".

The GUI is nice not because it flattens the learning curve - it's still a pain to teach someone all the ins and outs of Word or WordPerfect, just as it was in the old CLI versions - but because it's a very nice Least Common Denominator. You can put the tools of the CLI on the GUI, and you can have your other tools at the same time - and it's up to you how you want them to look.
