If I'm honest, one of the reasons I continue to go with the MX480 in the
edge, as opposed to an ASR9000.

Personally I use Tik for layer-2 stuff, be it media converters or switches where there’s not some other alternative that makes more sense.  I’m comfortable with a CLI, but most people I’ve tried to say “hey, use this it’s better” say “I can’t http/https to it, the learning curve is too steep”.

I use the GUI myself. I've fiddled around with the RouterOS CLI, and
while it's not difficult to learn, I'm old and lazy now. The GUI is very
well laid out, does everything it says it's supposed to do, which is
fine by me.
