Let me add my disagreement to this pile :).
I started using CVS from the commandline, and managed to break quite some
stuff and loose a lot of code. I still do not really grasp it. Lets face it:
CVS is very bad for branching tagging and stuff like that.
So then I moved to tortoise. Not perfect, but al least the learning curve got
I now use cervisia on KDE. This tool is the best GUI IMO for CVS. Not only
does it always show you the CVS commands it uses for doing its magic behind
the scenes (it educates me!) its settings by default are safe: If you start
using it, you cannot break anything very badly. Well, unless you fiddle with
the settings, but if you change advanced settings in something you dont know
you are really stupid.
so, yes, I plead for use of graphical tools. But that will not mean that you
must no know what you are doing. Being able to click does not mean you dont
have to think or read, evethough far too many ppl seem to think so.
