It's beyond me how you could be a programmer and not like the command line. It's the same thing.
The GUI is great, some apps are truly improved by a good graphical representation of data. And others by a (good) GUI's faster learning curve.
But when there isn't a graphical benefit, I chose CLI everytime. Maybe your problem Jeff is that you never experienced a proper UNIX command line? And you are still too stubborn to explore that avenue.
