Tony is just joking. I'm sure that at tea time he doesn't pull out a 
picture book!

and that's part of the serious point. if I know what I want, I can 
just say it (= type the command). even if I know the meaning of the 
pretty pictures, I have start the app, click around, drop down a menu, 
scroll here or there, blah, blah.

but yes, chacun a son gout or whatever. and sometimes the picture way 
is better, for instance, sorting a bunch of thumbnail files.
