Understanding Usability

Since usability seems to be a major topic on the OSNews forums, I think time has come to clarify some common misconceptions. Usability is not about selecting the fanciest Theme from kde-look.org, it’s not about ‘Reading the F*** Manual’, it’s not about having all application share the same looks, it’s not about nice front-ends to obscure command line programs, it’s not about newbie-friendliness, it’s not about apt-get install foobar and it’s not about setup.exe.
