Yeah.  It gets to the point where using the keyboard feels more like
playing the piano.  You're no longer typing, you're more doing pretty
simple "chords" on it, thinking not what keys you're pressing, but
what you want it to do.  And you're going to be spending as much time
mousing around through a GUI figuring out how it goes together as you
would reading the quick help in a console-based program, so why not go
for the more effective method and ditch the mouse for a minute?

There's times when a GUI isn't necissarily the best choice.
