What happened to the idea of "having a choice" ? If you want to keep
living in the 80's with a text based menu, go ahead, I prefer a click
solution. And I see no reason why a click solution is "always"
inefficient. That depends on the programmer making the interface.
I'm a desktop user. So I should mind my own business and shut up
because some old (or senior if you prefer) server guy has a problem
using a mouse ? No thanks ! I prefer to live in 2012 and use the
technical means of nowadays.
No flames intended, just my opinion (which has nothing to do with the
original question, I know).
