A lot of people share your preference.
Long ago I used to run MS-DOS v3 machines and I would edit the autoexec.bat and config.sys files. Then I started to use Windows v3 and I edited the win.ini and the system.ini files. Once Windows got GUI system administration tools I didn't see the point of looking for files to edit. I take the same view to configuring Unix and Linux. If I can find GUI applets to edit all those horrible little files for me then I'll use them.
