Having no idea off the top of my head what cli might be (I could look,
fwiw, and will), I guess that makes me part of the 20 - 30% -- and glad to
hear there are so many of us.

At any rate, that was far and away the plainest most useful form of the
answer, to the likes of me or us, that I've yet seen. Thank you, SIR,
bounteously, for putting it in those terms!

And lest there be any doubt, I mean every word exactly as written. Knowing
about irony is part of the professional competence I do have, and there is
none in what I said above. I love and prefer the command line, when I know
enough or somebody tells me; otherwise, that GUI is Sine Qua Non Number
One, especially while learning. I say again, with feeling, THANK YOU.

I have precious (very precious) little idea where up is.
