In the above case, you are using the CLI, not the GUI (the author mentions the 
distinction in the definition itself) The article is focusing on system 
administration, not coding.

Given a server to administor, would you rather manage things like ip address, 
routing options etc through a GUI tool like Yast or through the command line. 
Personally I would prefer the CLI, because the GUI cannot usually capture all 
the options present.
