Graphics, User Interfaces Ever since I bought my HTC HD7 way back in October 2010, I have been hooked on Windows Phone. Without even being able to test-drive the new operating system (The Netherlands didn't get Windows Phone 7 until a year later), I imported the HD7 from the US - the minimalist, stark, clean, flat, and textual interface spoke to me, and I just knew I would like it. And like it, I did.

Words take meaning from being useful symbols for concepts. You want to reduce the meaning of the computing concept known as the window to include screens, tabs, cards, views, printouts, and anything else you feel like? I don't agree, but I'd like to point out you're missing an opportunity here to be even more obtuse. Why not just call everything 'things'?


Does a glasshouse have windows?

It also applies the other way, when you disqualify something from belonging in a class of objects for completely arbitrary criteria (as you have done), then the class is also meaningless. A class that exists defined by how many things are not in it is useless.

Distinction without difference.
