Automating the world one-liner at a time…
Check out Tom Yager's article on TUI (Text User Interface) HERE.
People from every corner of the industry are beginning to figure it out. TEXT (CLI [Command Line Interface]) is your friend.
I'm strongly believe that this is a GUI AND CLI issue not a GUI OR CLI issue. It was a mistake to think that GUIs ever would, could, or even should, eliminate CLIs.

Thanks for the hint. I'm not an Architect nor some kind of Reasearcher, but I think it's quite obvious to have both options.
At least, unix systems works like this since, umh, I wasn't even born, ... You have a standard CLI (ie. shell) and if you need and you can you start a GUI (X Server).
In my opionion, the Big improvement is to have a component model (objects) to work with, ie, applying modern and proven software engineering concepts to systems management.
