Technology » Windows suck

written by owen, Mon, 13th Oct 2003 at 12:05 am

As you may have realized fellow mouse-kittiers, the graphical user interface sucks. Haven't you ever notice how you never get any better at it? Every day you get on you computer and click the start button (or whatever you do doesn't matter). Even though I am a seasoned computer user basic activities are always take the same amount of time to complete. Anyway every day you get up and you click the same button on the interface, you could have clicked it a million times before but YOU WILL STILL HAVE TO LOOK AT IT. It takes like 1 to 2 seconds to figure out where the button is situated. Usually you brain keeps trying to figure out if by some strange occurrence all you icons moved during the night, but they haven't.
This is most definitely the drawback of the GUI The constant need to constantly be looking at what your doing. While at the same time reassuring your brain that everything is in the right order and that your not formatting you hard drive.
I haven't used the new apple OS X. But it's the same look, point and click kinda interface. When you've use a computer as long or as much as I have you'll begin to realize that even though you know what your doing, the GUI just simply never allows you to do it any faster.
The GUI is probably the best thing we have wildly available to us now. But it certainly isn't perfect nor is it going to get any better. The directory file system sucks as well but I will discuss that at a later date.
