The sentence is precise and to the point. There's no need to change it to
cater to those who are *intrinsically* disinterested in:

- configuring programs by changing the source code

- using command line programs, often several at a time, working together through

- foregoing flashy UI libraries which just add eye candy and megabytes of
  pointless code

and by extension, those disinterested in using suckless programs. It is their
preference that sets them apart, and there's nothing wrong in that. Why force
them to use suckless software when they don't want to? Those who do want to use
it, understand and respect its philosophy will not be turned off.
