I'm always a bit suspicious of developers who don't like a GUI

There are complex operations which are handled better in a GUI - because it's simpler to see many information at once and reduce mistakes. Especially when you have to work on complex software without a large team and dedicated resources for configuration management.

For simpler commands which don't require a lot of information displayed, the CLI can be faster.
