Editorial Like many of you, I've been watching the big changes in user interfaces over the past few years, trying to make sense of them all. Is there a common explanation for the controversies surrounding the Windows 8 UI and Unity? Where do GNOME 3, KDE, Cinnamon, and MATE fit in? This article offers one view.

Droves of people will stop loving and spending hours on computers, because you know if you do something even an id1ot can use, only idio7s will use it.


So I guess only idiots use stuff bicycles, stoves and books, right? Oh come off the elitist mountain. Just because it's easier to use doesn't mean it will only attract idiots. Not everyone has the time and interest to screw around endlessly with their desktop adn computer and that's ok. It's also ok to screw around with it endlessly, if that's what you like. Just don't think that makes you better or smarter.

Profitable, but no one will love it like yesterday.


Sure, if you say so.
