Fair enough, I understand that most migrators find the Command Line scary, 
however please bear in mind that the Command Line Interface is part of the 
beauty of a Linux system for experienced users, it is not something that 
should be brushed under the carpet, it should be celebrated and its use 
encouraged. That said, CLI free configuration is a sensible move so long as 
it doesn't break the text-based approach, which considering the modular 
nature of a Linux system is fairly unlikely in most cases.
