The people who insist it's better in ALL situations I think are making it more of a religion rather than trying to look at it objectively (or hell, prove me wrong in my examples above).

@NoahDVS never said CLI was better in all situations or that it was even superior to a GUI. I don't even use CLI that much but it is objectively faster/better in specific situations. Ironically, your rejection of CLI feels almost like religious fanaticism.

 

One example that is not even CLI but purely keyboard based would be - [Windows] > "ca" > [Enter]. This is the command I use to bring up the windows calculator in less than half a second. All I have to type is "ca" and Windows search lists calculator as the top result (based on use history) and hitting enter opens it. The only thing I can think of that would be almost as fast would be a mouse gesture, but that would require first creating one specifically for the calculator. However the ability to open almost any app I want in less than a second by pressing 4 keys makes the former technique far superior in flexibility and scope.

The person you were responding to never said CLI was faster in all situations. I don't use CLI much but it is objectively faster in specific situations. Ironically, your rejection of CLI feels almost like religious fanaticism.
