My opinion:
0. GUI is very useful. GUI is very important. It’s too much increases users number.
1. GUI must be simple_to_use like minesweeper game.
2. GUI must be whole Multilanguage.
3. Related link:
       Citation: “A user interface is well-designed when the program behaves exactly how the user thought it would.”

Use case 1.

Use case 2.
G> Who is running web servers on this network?
Use case 3.
G> What services is this client running?
Use case 4.
G> What web server is this client running?
Use case N.
........ ?
What is remain?

5. Agree. GUI must handle ALL use cases in a efficient way.

6. Only QT.
6.0. Swing is so slow. All users hate swing.
6.1. QT looks better.
6.2. Java requires the virtual machine.
