I really hate reading that.  There are crap CLI tools as well as GUI
tools.  It's not a case that GUI or CLI is better or worse than each
other, but that some programmers are.

CLI tools are heavily dependent on good documentation.  Some
documentation is absolutely crap, if there even is any.

GUI tools can be intuitively designed, if the designer has any idea
about creating good GUIs.

Both problems rest squarely on the shoulders of who programmed them, not
the GUI or CLI.
