I prefer gui apps, because is 21st century, not time of first computers. 
If we want linux will more popular, it must have more gui apps. I agree, 
cli is better for older and slow computers or if you want work without 
spinning computer ventilators, but learn with gui is in my oppinion 
easier than cli.

Take care.

Best regards
