A tool

It is easy to forget that the computer is just a tool, a means to an end. It might be fun, it might be interesting, heck, you might even scrape a living out of it.

It is easy to forget that the computer is just a tool, a means to an end. It might be fun, it might be interesting, heck, you might even scrape a living out of it. But the computer is just a tool.

Over the years I have helped numerous family members and friends to set up computers, for music, internet, word processing, all sorts of uses. One of the key phrases I hear time and time again is:

“I just want it to work.”

I believe that the interface for the program/operating system/web application should be as simple, intuitive and consistent as possible (see Google, Apple, Moo etc.).

In My Humble Opinion, this is why (Ubuntu) Linux has made such leaps and bounds, the fact that it now pretty much works out of the box on wide variety of platforms.
