2. Project Fantastic – Bringing The CLI to GUI Users – PSW #650

Lots of IT and security professionals do not want to use the CLI, which has set them back. Fantastic exposes the same power as the CLI in an easy to use GUI that is more consistent and hopefully easier to navigate/use than the native GUI tools.
