GUI can help you understand the generalities of a system. But for me the CLI and automation is the only way to do repetitive tasks. Script something once and you will have it forever.. or untill the vendor makes breaking changes.
Sometimes I think it is laziness that makes people use GUI, but I have realised now it is laziness that makes me script repetitive tasks so I can do one step rather than 10.
