        Some GUI applications (notably, web browsers) impose large overheads in 
storage and CPU 
use, which are minimal in CUI applications.  The extra overheads and complexity 
can lead 
to sluggish response.  Also, in many cases CUI applications are easier to work 
because the user is no continually having to switch from keyboard to mouse, 
interrupts work flow.
