There are many topics that tend to come up in a recurring manner around water coolers throughout the Linux blogosphere, and not just the great "Year of" debate, either. No indeed, another shining example more than a little familiar to most of us who spend any time here is the much-abused command line -- specifically, whether it's outlived its usefulness in this era of the GUI.

if you ask my opinion, modern computer users are plain spoiled, i remember in grade school learning how to use computers with DOS, and if we were lucky windows 3.11 and occasionally windows 95, or a mac. if grade school kids can be taught to use a command line is it really that hard or are people just being plain lazy? yeah sure the gui makes some things easier, but a lot of things would be outright impossible with a gui. heck i switched from mac to linux because of the lack of a command line in mac os (hehe, even MAC os added a command line, which is a bash shell).
