JEF RASKIN

 
Imagine if every Thursday your shoes exploded if you tied them the usual way. This happens to us all the time with computers, and nobody thinks of complaining.
- Jef Raskin - From an interview in Dr. Dobb's Journal.
I reject the idea that computers are difficult to use because what we do with them has become irretrievably complicated. No matter how complex the task a product is trying to accomplish, the simple parts of the task should remain simple.

My definition of an operating system: What you have to hassle with before you get to hassle with the application.
