GUI obviously. Why type when everything can be a few clicks away? Less stress on the old fingers and arms when clicking!

Defientally GUI. Like Andy said, it puts less stress on the hands/fingers.

GUI, but I think CLI experience is a very good thing because when it comes down to it and it all goes to hell being able to work on a command line kicks (and often saves) ass :D

Exactly. But I slightly prefer the command-line as it all started with DOS (and later Unix) for me.

Yeah, I still actually enjoy working in MSDOS, though I've forgotten a lot of it, I remember enough to work comfortably in it... also AmigaDOS was good. Not had much experience with *nix though.
