Thats rude.
DaZZa has his opinion and so do you.

I can *AND* cant at the same time undesrstand what his argument is.
If Linux is continuing in the same way as it is in the moment there is
a danger that we end up like Windoooooze. 

On the other hand GUI;s do provide some nice features. I love sed,grep,
perl,ngrep,tcsh,pipes, redirection,history and so may more fetures that 
are given by the commandline but yet "ksysv" saves me a lot of time 
changing the boot setup .....
