Good point. I actually didn't want to make it any longer than it already is because I tried to hopefully entice a few readers who wouldn't otherwise read essays about usability. People have mentioned above that they deem the article rather accessible and approachable. I suspect being concise and limiting its scope was a big part of that.

Also, I wasn't sure if OSNews readers cared about this topic much at all, and I wanted to test the waters, so to speak. ;)
