In all seriousness, I am convinced that I spend less time using ls,
mv, etc for file management than I would if I used a GUI file manager.
Tab completion and other shell goodies help a lot with that.
It's a rare occasion that I open something like Nautilus. The trade
off, of course, was the time I spent learning the commands. Different
strokes for different folks, as they say. :)
I do know what you're saying about making the computer do the work. I
try real hard to recognize if I'm doing something boring and
repetitive and remind myself that is what computers were meant to
solve, not create. Usuaully, I'm laughing at friends and family for
letting their computers abuse them like that.
