Apple John Gruber illustrates the dangers of not having a clue about history: "The utter simplicity of the iOS home screen is Apple's innovation. It's the simplest, most obvious 'system' ever designed." Thanks for playing.

When comparing the iOS home screen to the home screen from Thom's link you'll notice the iOS one is simpler.


It really isn't. You clearly never had to explain to people how to move icons around, how to create and un-create folders, and so on. The iOS home screen has lots of unintuitive and hard-to-find things that ought to be simpler to perform.
