Repetition and Automation are two major incentives to make use of CLI irrelevant of OS. If you do something once or even a few times the GUI might be faster but if you do it 100 times CLI wins hands down. Throw in automation and I just don't know how people can argue the fact. I guess sys-admins who are pro/purist GUI-mins are happy to live their lives building their chances of RSI. Sorry derailing thread /resume thread. Some interesting replies here.
