One button

From a comment by Aslam on Jono’s site:

I even heard someone say “GNOME devs will be truely happy on the day when GNOME reduces to a single button. Great usability and simplicity. No confusion. Grandpa and Grandma can use it. Functionality? How does it matter? Usability is the king”

If someone can deliver me a computer which has one button, “Do What I Mean”, and that one button works, that’s fine with me. If that’s Gnome’s goal, more power to them. Why would it possibly be a bad thing to have a single button that does what you want? Unless of course you use computers for the sake of it rather than to actually get things done, in which case, well, good luck with that.

I'm currently available for hire, to help you plan, architect, and build new systems, and for technical writing and articles. You can take a look at some projects I've worked on and some of my writing. If you'd like to talk about your upcoming project, do get in touch.
