In other words, it's easier to do what you need to do using XP than any other OS.


I've been a System Manager on several OpenVMS systems and I would not ever change places with a Windows Administrator; just the thought of having to manage user accounts without a command-line interface makes me cringe. Dead | X|

There are tasks for which a GUI is a good choice, but there are also many tasks for which a command-line is vastly superior.


And I never had carpal tunnel syndrome until I had to use a mouse all day.
