Each of the approaches has its advantages and disadvantages.  Bash has
the excellent tab-completion feature which you can't use while in
mc.  For some purposes, Bash would be faster than either of Nautilus
or Midnight Commander, if you know your stuff, and know how to use it
(when I switched from DOS where I used Norton Commander, Midnight
Commander was the first thing I used; I don't use it at all anymore,
even though I heavily use shell; "gnome-open ." is what I use to
manage files if tab-completion doesn't do it).

But, this doesn't prove anything:

And many, many, many, many tasks are much easier to do in the gui
than on the command line.

Because we need something that it is not?
