Editorial Computers are complex systems but it's a mistake to assume they need to be complex to use. However, usability is not as easy as it may first seem. It is a different discipline from software development lacking the strict logic or having a "right way". There are only differing requirements and differing collections of guidelines. Making things easy is difficult.

HID vs. Control

Ive used just about every type of user interface I can think of, Win. Mac, Unix, Palm, BeOS.. even afew expermental ones.. The best ones are Panther, BeOS, and Gnome. Overall I think like the new versions of Gnome the best. It isent the "most usable" however it provides good usability and more control than the rest.

WindowLab is kinda a neat idea too.. but I havent used it too much.
