OSNews, Generic OSes Taking a break from reporting on the latest netbook or phone rumours, Engadget posted an article yesterday about several elements in desktop operating systems writer Paul Miller finds outdated. While there's some interesting stuff in there, there's also a lot to discuss.

My dad taught me to drive on his old Fiat when I was 14.

On the other hand, my Nissan Titan is an automatic. I once drove a manual pickup truck for plowing, let me tell you that shifting while making plow adjustments is a royal pain in the ass.

Automatics suit trucks. Manuals for everything else.

As far as OS paradigms go... I am flexible. I'll try different things (for example I actually like Moblin's interface - which isn't really a huge change but...) after all I started my career on VT52's and VT100's.
