Compuserve 7 Ships with Gecko

Tuesday April 16th, 2002

Both c|net and Slashdot are reporting that Compuserve 7 has shipped, and AOL used Gecko, rather than Trident (IE), to power the layout of content. Compuserve's content is completely web-based, so AOL using Gecko as the layout engine shows their confidence in it. Check out the c|net story or if you have Compuserve, grab 7.0.

"If you're a regular joe user, Unix has a terribly unintuitive UI"

I'll bite here.. it all comes down to what you are used to. Windows users find Mac and UN*X interfaces unintuitive. Mac users find Windows and UN*X interfaces unintuitive. UN*X users find Mac and Windows interfaces unintuitive.

They are all inconsistent, they all have their faults, they all are really intuitive only if you are already familiar with them. Find someone with no computing experience and site them down in front of any of them, they will have roughly the same amount of difficulty.

IMHO, of course.

BTW, I doubt your mum can add additonal icons to the windows start menu, or upgrade from WinXP service pack three, either. As for the comparison about upgrading your OS, it's not even relevant to a UI discussion..
