Have you ever worked (IT-wise!) with a Mac? You would know that is wrong.
Even on a bling-bling Mac most things are done best on CLI.
Anyway, most of you guys seem to think in black and white. GUI or CLI. You are mistaken. It is GUI and CLI on all systems out there.
Some things (video editing) are best done with a GUI, others (automatizing your system, sending short mails , ...) are best done in the terminal. This applies to all major operating systems - even to Windows.
Oh,Come on now cut and paste is ergonomic too. I can remember having to rewrite a whole subroutine because of an error in one line. Cut and paste would have been great back then. Come to think of it that's why I started stacking subroutines was because I didn't have cut and paste. I loved when I found the program "Sidekick" and learned I could use it to create batch files./dev/urandom wrote:In this case you did clicking, not writing code.

But we're nitpicking now.

You want to install program A. When trying to install it, you're told that program A needs program B and file X to work. You spend a good amount of time looking all over the internet for program B and file X. Then you install file X and try to install program B and you're told that program B needs program C and files Y and Z to work.
Then you spend, again, a good amount of time on the internet looking for files Y and Z and program C. You find the files, install file Y and try to install file Z. When installing, you're told that file Z conflicts with file W that is already installed on your system. When trying to remove file W, you're told that your favorite program, program D, needs file W in order to work. If you remove file W, you must also remove progam D and all the other files and programs that need them.
You're also trying to install program C that was needed in order to install program B. You're told that program C needs the libraries of Desktop Environment Q, and that you have those libraries but they're too old so you need to upgrade them. If you upgrade, your Desktop Environment Q and all the programs integrated with it stop working unless you upgrade them, too.

Ummm, I used to reinstall windows every month or 2 for various reasons. One of the main reasons I switched to linux. And guess what? There are new versions of windows every couple of years now. Pulease.
Plus, you make it sound like reinstalling every few years is such a hardship.
I for one, like new shiny new releases. Keeping the same install for 5 years is out of the question. I am not a corporation that needs the same OS for years. I am a regular computer user that plays music, surfs, gimp, and most other everyday tasks.
