I love GUIs, I'm a big I-Candy geek, I like to see a lot of things
work with my mouse. Moreover I'm not such a good dev, and even worse,
not a good emacs/vim user.

But yet, I find it a lot more productive to work with a command line
for 90% of the non audio work I do on my station. Same goes when I
work on administering unix systems at work.

Now let's face something. Windows has no command line. I don't see why
windows users would see the advantage of command line tools compared
to nice and shiny GUIs. You say that "anything that smells even
faintly of Windows is like a red rag". I don't agree. I would say that
when something is related to windows, no one talks of anything but
GUIs because there's nothing else (usable at least). In the unix
world, there's both.
