I haven't done DB work but still found your story hilarious.

After I started to use GUIs as a user, I never wanted to see command line stuff again. Ever. When Apple Macs came out, we used them for everything but development, which was on terminals hosted by IBM mainframes. When Unix workstations replaced the terminals, I was not pleased. Eventually I got up to speed, by why this suffering? With GUIs, you just poke around and figure out how to do most things without even reading the documentation. It was the same with MS-DOS. Having used a Mac, I thought it was total crap.

Of course, the software that I develop only has a command line interface. Big Grin | :-D The problem with GUIs is that they're platform specific and add even more boilerplate, which C++ already provides enough of.
