Pretty graphical interfaces are commonly called โ€œuser friendly.โ€ But they are not really your friends. Underlying every user-friendly interface is a terrific human contempt โ€ฆ No good, crash-resistant system can be built except if itโ€™s done for an idiot. The prettier the user interface, and the fewer odd replies the system allows you to make, the dumber you once appeared in the mind of the designer.
