This strongly depends on the work you do. For embedded development there are 
many interactions with gdb which can not be done via GUI. Also, as there is 
no quick way to see the variable value (for example, as I suggested - as a 
call out when cursor is hoovering over the variable), I often use "print" 
command (because I do not want so many variables to be displayed all the time 
in variables window - this takes significant time via the f.e. serial line).
