Hi Ralf,

I agree with you, and indeed I wrote:

"Here are 10 *more or less* valid reasons to use CLI:"

And then:

"I think that reasons 5 and 6 are the most valuable."

Actually, reason 5 reads: "Commands are more powerful",
and reason 6 reads: "You can automate commands".

Anyway, some of my co-workers have different reasons to love CLI:
reason 1 ("Keying is faster than mousing") had a lot of votes from people
using vi Editor instead of NetBeans IDE.

And I could add a reason 11: "You haven't always a Desktop Interface 
but we are all programmers and sysadmins, and we work a lot on remote 
headless servers,
so our point of view is a bit biased ;)
