Are people more comfortable using a user interface to configure an application or are they more comfortable using a command line to edit configuration files? Are there cases where one solution is better than another or should an application support both?"

I need (re: want) access to my files at all times (over a network is fine), especially since I maintain a library of what I've got on the TV computer. I don't want to have swappable USB drives, I want all hard drives available all the time on my network. I'm assuming that, since it's on a network, I won't need 16,000 RPM drives and thus I'm hoping a solution exists that can be moderately quiet and/or hidden away somewhere and still keep somewhat cool. So Slashdot, what have you done?
