I don't know who these "people" are, but GUIs certainly have their uses.
If you are doing your work professionally, I suppose product management
tells you what features are needed in the product.

It's suprprising that there don't seem to be good GUI applications in
existence. Web apps are notoriously bad. (My relatively small
experiences with GUI development suggest GUI builders are to blame for
the bad GUIs much of the time.)
