This is certainly true and while I'm a command line guy, have been for
years, it is very difficult to keep up with changes in command line
tools as things come and go.  This is where the GUI shines.  Just look
at all the wealth of information out there about how to configure LDAP
for example.  If you Google for this you will end up with much that is
just plain wrong.  Again this is where the GUI really shines.
