While packages using graphical user interfaces appear to have gained a sizeable share of the computer software market, there is surprisingly little research into whether they are superior to more traditional, character-based interface designs; research conducted so far often provides conflicting evidence. The purpose of this paper is to investigate the qualitative and quantitative differences between graphical and character-based user interfaces, using a range of methods and software packages.
