That's still not an advantage.

When you really need to use a disk configuration tool, you will
be neck-deep in alligators. You may have a serial console or a
text console that can't do X and may not have a network
capability. You may be three thousand miles away and need to
bring the disks up before you do anything else.

In which circumstances, not having experience with the command
line tool is... problematic.

On the other hand, this is a discussion list about boxes that
sit in your living room, or perhaps as far away as your basement
or attic. So, do what you like.
