One thing the command-line does well is to give names to concepts
(basically, command names, option names, ...). It's easy to write in a
tutorial or an email "run the command 'git foo'". It's less easy to
write "click on that red button, on the right of the green one".
Then, it's clear to everyone what "commit", "rebase", "amend" & so mean,
regardless of the colors of buttons (that's one of the reasons I use the
english words even when I speak french).

That said, even when I teach the command-line, gitk is a very valuable
tool to explain what the DAG is and how branching works.
