What about old school?

There is a lot of talking about GUI’s as opposed to command line interfaces going on.  I realize that some people just prefer to have a faster program to work with, and they will choose a basic command line to perform actions rather than play around with fancy buttons and pretty pictures.  I can understand this now, but with all of these new products coming out with touch sensitivity and visual stimulants, how long will the command line be used primarily by people.  I would think a long time, but just a year or so ago I noticed that some servers now are run by both command line interfaces and GUI’s.  Do these interfaces actually need each other as technology continues to evolve, or will people in general start to prefer one over the other?
