I hope you are not comparing application interfaces to application manuals
and telling us they are expected to provide us the same type of
Man pages just like books are great if you need in-depth information, they
are not that great as an interface for an application.
GUIs are not expected to replace manpages or other complete sources of
information, they are expected to increase your productivity by providing
interface for tasks, something that really matters for frequent tasks that
cannot be automated.

I really don't understand this eternal concern of non-GUI advocates with GUI
implementations, why do you keep questioning other people needs based on
your own habits ?
Being satisfied is not a good reason to question other people needs for
