Editorial A couple of days ago, I read an interesting article by Kevin Kostis about how complex computer systems are and how they have a long way to go. I have to partly agree with his assessment, however a lot of folks don't take the time to learn about there own investment.

> I think it is ludicrous to expect an inherently complex machine like a computer (it's everything you want it to be) to be (or to become) as easy as (or easier than) a VCR. There will always be people unable to program their VCR and there will be people unable to use a computer. That is the way life goes.

To paraphrase: "it was difficult to program, so it should be difficult to use."
