[News] User Interface in KDE Make More Sense Than Windows

Hash: SHA1

GNU/Linux is user-friendly - and logical too

| Once again, I don't know what distribution refused to communicate with Davey. 
| Every time I put in an USB key in my AMD64 box, a little dialgoue box pops up 
| asking me what I would like to do and giving me three or four choices. When I 
| pop in a DVD, VLC comes up and plays it. Let me be honest, I would much 
| rather do this manually but that's the control freak in me speaking.    
| There is an impression that Windows comes configured out of the box to do 
| many things. As someone who is called on to build grey boxes twice or thrice 
| a year and install and configure Windows for friends, let me assure you that 
| this is far from the truth.   


Kelsey Bjarnason and Peter Köhlmann wrote some good posts about this too.

Looking Back on Three Years of OpenUsability with Jan Mühlig

| The Season of Usability, which Ellen initiated, which thus far

| launching the new OpenUsability platform which should very
| much ease collaboration.
