    Yes, because we all know that TheCotMan is very concerned with reducing the amount of text on this board.

    The command line gives experienced users great power.
    The GUI gives mediocre users marginal competence.
    True, but seeing as we are discussing the speed of an interface, one purpose of a GUI is to reduce the amount of time required to perform common tasks. The end result is sometimes that the work required of the computer is much greater than the work required of the user. I think it is safe to assume that bascule's computer wouldn't have such frustrations (seeing as how bascule designed it ).

    Clicks yes.

    Gives a new meaning to the "Cancel" button.

    (This is a pet peeve of mine, by the way, and even Apple gets it wrong on occasion. Are "Yes"/"No" answers really so hard to implement?)

    It sounds like you chose the "demon" assistant. My "hippy" assistant asks: "It looks like you are trying to kill that driver on the road in a bit of road rage. Have you considered alternative forms of transportation?"

    Nope, I've got it covered. Thanks, though.

      Yep. Right up there with the Old MacOS: "drag floppy disk to trash to eject" and MS Windows "Click on 'Start' to shutdown."

      Ah! Are you saying this Interface was designed by Bacule? If so, what would this Mr. "Hippy" [assistant] be shaped like? [It certainly wouldn't be a paperclip... and what would happen at 4:20 when you need help?]
      (I laughed out loud while reading your post. Excellent stuff.)
