RE[2]: Um no

Member since:

That's because they rather say RTFM instead of designing usable software.

The end user choice and ease of use stuff built into MS products is generally what is getting them in so much trouble, as this article points out. Are you suggesting that more of this needs to be coded into software that doesn't already suffer from those problems? Maybe you should suggest this to any F/OSS coders you know and see if they will try it.

Or are you espousing the Mac philosophy that any software that needs a manual is poorly written?

Or 'C', none of the above?
