Re: Ahh! Registry hacking! Of course.
In Mint KDE I have to go CLI maybe once or twice a week. On Windows 7 I have to go CLI maybe once or twice a year.
That really depends on what you are doing. In some situations, whether Linux or Windows, the CLI actually works a lot better because the GUI is not designed to do certain tasks. Even Microsoft admits that much, especially when they are pushing Powershell.
Actually there is only one reason why I am forced to go to the CLI at the moment on Linux, and that's because of f*****g systemd!
