Graphics, User Interfaces This is the seventh article in a series on common usability and graphical user interface related terms [part I | part II | part III | part IV | part V | part VI]. On the internet, and especially in forum discussions like we all have here on OSNews, it is almost certain that in any given discussion, someone will most likely bring up usability and GUI related terms - things like spatial memory, widgets, consistency, Fitts' Law, and more. The aim of this series is to explain these terms, learn something about their origins, and finally rate their importance in the field of usability and (graphical) user interface design. In part VII, as promised in part VI, we focus completely on CDE, the Common Desktop Environment.

Maybe you just need the experience of watching some "never-used-something-else-then-windows" first semester students trying to get their CD back out of an Solaris machine... that is really priceless, like watching a monkey trying to get sweets out of an glass with a too narrow opening. You almost feel sorry for them...
