I doubt that it's ever 'necessary' but it's nice on the eyes. Truth be 
told, I'm probably equally comfortable with either command prompt or 
GUI. I sure didn't have a GUI for a long time when I first started into 
computers and so I was used to that. Since windows 3.11, though, I've 
pretty much stuck to GUI's except on servers. There's just something 
soothing to the eyes about KDE (down with gnome!)
