It looks like nobody likes Windows Vista too much, according to the vote.

Whaaaat?? Win98 was the pinacle of OSs - and brought about more changes in the OS landscape than any other OS. And HDs grinding? You mean CPU, right? And that's BS anyway.

I was kidding. But it's true, though, that the GUI used a ton of space. Command-Line works better for me.

Well all GUIs use space and seriously, no need to try and pretend you prefer command line. Everyone prefers a GUI. Well, except perhaps master Foo!

Actually, I do like command-line.

It's faster. If there was a GUI that was faster then the command-line, I'd use the GUI. Until then, though..
Also, Command-Line is powerful, especially on UNIX. You can usually do more with a few typed commands then you can with a few mouse clicks.

Yeah that's what I mean. If you have the same features and speed (there is no difference in nmap from command line and nmap with a gui in terms of speed) then you will always pick a GUI. Obviously, if the features aren't available with a GUI then you'd go with command. But remember, programs with GUIs often have more features.

Unless, of course, you are using NetCat ;)
