    Text? Yes. Command line? I don’t think so.

    Don't think so pal. UI teaches the user in an instant what they can do; CLI requires study. Is CLI difficult? Not once you've learned it, but UI skips that step.

    Am I the only one who is a bit skeptic about this new "medium-blogpost" marketing technique? I think is ultimately silly, it tricks you into reading a blog article about design - by which you hope to learn something and start a discussion out of it - and it merely ends up being a TV ad. By the way, no, CLI is not the future. GUI replaced it because it conveys more information and thus more affordance for users who are not expert and don't know the system. Plus, CLI requires text inputs which is easier if you have a standard size keyboard in front of you. It could also requires more cognitive effort since you have to abstract an action into a line of text. I agree that command line interfaces are be more effective in some cases (e.g Git), but hey, no way the future is gonna look like matrix green code.
