I was one of the last people in my company to give up my crack berry... Touch screens typically dont work for me. I also hate how nasty something i have to look at can get because of folks grubby fingers. GUI's really have their place. I have worked with systems where a large number of devices (100's) can be administered via a single GUI. I worked with their predecessors and had to spend hours reaching out and touching individual devices. 30 minutes on a GUI as opposed to all night touching stuff is a God send.Gawd, don't tell me. Modern touch screens were not designed for big-fingered peops like me. My 2nd hone was a slider, 3rd was a flip (clamshell), 4th was a full, hard keyboard, a Nokia E5, best phone ever.
i think as linux users we tend to use the terminal probably many times when we perhaps dont need to, but linux is so fun , the terminal is part of the fun! piping , combing commands , trying to come up with new wizardy!!!!!
