Linux should be like a window
George Orwell wrote "Good prose is like a window pane". Good software is the same, so that you are concentrating on what you are doing, not how you are doing it.

There are huge, complex and mind-numbingly technical advances in all of this technology. But all I want is for my window still to work the way I want.
