GUIs are designed for people who can't type, and those whose hands haven't (yet) given way to the abuse of for ever being switched between usages, and don't have other physical problems with their arms/wrists/hands. I fall in the latter category only: I can type, but the more I have to muck about with a mouse, the less time I can spend at the keyboard before I have to move on to something else. Keep your beastly GUIs, if you must, but don't try and impose them on me because you've fallen for someone else's rhetoric about their value. And, of course, you *do* impose an hideous GUI on me if you so wrap your mail up in Mime that I can't read it without passing it through a Mime decoding engine. Robin *This* mail is Mime compliant. It can co-exist with lying dwarves that sing in German.
