Windows You can say what you will about Windows Phone and Windows 8's Metro interface (I refuse to drop that name) - it's inefficient, unpopular, cumbersome, beautiful, ugly, organised, clean, limiting - but there's one thing we can all agree on: it's unique and distinctive. CNet has published a profile of Microsoft's Albert Shum, the man behind Metro, and he highlights what I think is at the very core of Microsoft's problems in mobile right now.

"Yes most people can _learn_ to use Windows 8, but essentially no one can figure it out without instruction.

You can replace "use" with another verb and "Windows 8" with another noun, and it's still true. ;)

Is it?

Yes most people can learn to resurrect Abraham Lincoln, but essentially no one can figure it out without instruction
