No that would not be fair becuase I would rather use a GUI. I think the problem with the GUI is that it is filled with bugs becuase when i tried to install the red hat documentation through the gui it did not work but with the command prompt it would.
Another reason that command line instructions are used is because everyone running an rpm based distribution has this facility but may not have the GUI installed.
