I'm sorry you don't like it. Feel free to explain why, and actually answer what I've written.

Give me some stronger evidence as to otherwise please.

the ordinary user prefer the good UI design, intuitiveness, and simplicity of gnome. and thats a FACT!

They prefer something that works even better ;-). That's a fact based on my experience of actually doing it, not based on me buying the marketing literature of Gnome about intuitivenss simplicity, blah, blah, blah.

Difficult for you to take probably, but there you go.

Well, If you actually would have read anything about UI Design, you would know that the concept of "intuitiveness" ist just extremely bogus. There is nothing such as "intuition" in UIs. Only familiarity.

And simplicity? Well please, create a simple interface for managing an nuclear reactor....

You will only get a "as simple as possible" but never a simple interface.


So please. Spare us your "FACTs".

Intuition also refers to predictability, e.g. things being in the expected place. While familiarity can be important between different computer interfaces, familiarity with real world interfaces are even more valuable. Computer-based familiarity would be, for example, konqueror and windows explorer. Familiarity with the real world is demonstrated with the old finder seen in the mac os classics, or tracker in BeOS.
