Sure, you have this powerful Command Line
Interface - so what? Humans do not work that way.
/me is surprised to learn that he is not human.
I hate to reach for the mouse
because is not well designed
for use by humans. It was apparently a design stolen
the race in "The Mote in God's Eye". I'm a
programmer so I have to actually type quite a bit and I
really prefer to do it fast so
I actually use two hands for
it. Everytime I have to reach for the mouse (and it
usually amazes people how infrequently I'm forced to)
I have to take one hand away from the keyboard. I hate
that and it slows me down.
The great advantage to the GUI is that it makes the learning
curve more shallow. This is lovely for things that you've
never done before
or things that you only rarely do. For
things that you do all of the time and that you are supposed
to be an expert at, a GUI
almost always gets in the way and
slows things down. On the other hand, I like climbing steep
curves so I'm probably a freek as well as being from another
planet (certainly many of my cow orkers don't bother to
become "experts" at editting, to my eye). On the gripping
hand, there is more than one way to do user interfaces
(TIMTOWTDUI) and no one way is the
best for all situations.
All in fun, Love
