|The intoduction of intuitive graphical user interfaces was a very
|important step for Linux, for instance. It was not necessary for a
|programmer, it was necessary for the users who found this easier to
|use. It was only cosmetical, but brought Linux forward a great step.



        Then, apparently you have not attempted to use Red Hat Linux 9.

        It is apparent to me that Red Hat did their best to remove the
        command line interfaces that they could, to remove as many user
        choices as they could and to make the user interface as graphical
        and as Microsoft Windows like as they could.  The result is a
        system that is almost unusable.
