    I prefer CLI when doing anything with files or file systems.
    But programming? I love my IDE, especially the Jetbrains stuff!

    @SHA-256 Build a program that translates an image file to a 2D array of strings.
    Each element of that array contains the ANSI escape sequence necessary to render a pixel.
    Print the array.
    Configure your program such that you can move the cursor to any arbitrary pixel and select a new color for it.
    When finished, re-translate the new image to the image file.
    That's how you edit images in CLI.
    You may need to adjust the resolution of terminal.
    You can even build the program in C

    I do all configuration of servers, switches, routers, etcetc via CLI only. I send email via CLI and read them.

    GUI is for webbrowsing and gaming, and movies

    You can do just as much with the right GUI, often with a more rich display of information. The "look at me cli" guys are the meat head "how much you bench bro" jocks of devs.
