I’m thinking of MS Windows. You have the choice of using the terminal but very often when using the terminal to perform, say, configuration tasks, you are presented with a dialog.
I know that many users prefer the GUI. They are not necessarily naive or inexperienced, they are sophisticated users many with technical skill far beyond mine. I mean no disrespect for that preference, but I would be very disappointed if Manjaro was thinking of that direction.
Please understand that I am new here.
I saw a post about the intention to replace pacman with pamac. I believe pamac is a GUI application with a CLI interface tacked on as an afterthought. Network Manager, for example, is like this.
That’s okay. I’m not one to get in the way of others’ preferences. However I feel in some cases, such as in the Windows example, others preferences get in the way of mine.
