That's the most retarded thing I've ever heard.

Point and click is to make your job easier. You don't like it, that's perfectly fine. Point and click is not a skill, true. It does help, though, in getting serious work done with.

And what does point-and-click have to do with Open-Source? You have commercial Unixes too. You have DOS. You have a dozen more.

Point and click is vital, my friend, if you make your money the way I do. I do design. Tell me how I'm to design magazine covers without 'pointing-and-clicking' ?
