Command-line interface on GUI programs. - Programming On Unix

In my opinion, a GUI should never be more than a number of knobs to control the underlying CLI application - or library, of course. Not only would that allow severe upgrades of the underlying code without having to release a new GUI all the time, it also makes no sense to restrict the CLI to what a GUI can do (most notably, piping).

<mort> choosing a terrible license just to be spiteful towards others is possibly the most tux0r thing I've ever seen
