Right, this is part of the Free Software philosophy, that is, "do
things the way you want", not "I don't care if there is another way to
GUI has the slight problem it's nightmarish to document, because the
UI can be localised (and the localisation may be unstable), themes
interfere, GUI devs like to change their UI every few releases, and
you can't assume the same utilities are installed on KDE and GNOME
desktops. That's why almost no one uses help pages for GUI tools,
because they seem to get out of date all the time by design.
Documentation is not impossible to do, but it requires several orders
of magnitude more work than the CLI.
