Ubuntu’s HUD: Why It’s A Terrible Idea
I just read another article proclaiming why HUD (Head Up Display) is a great idea. The gist of it is that
* HUD learns on the job improving its performance with use.
* HUD allows you to search for menu items by hitting Alt + search terms
* HUD is faster and easier to use/learn.
In fighter aircraft the idea of HUD was to allow a pilot to see important stuff while looking through the windscreen for important stuff allowing intricate operations without taking the eye off either. That‘s a good thing. Ubuntu’s HUD is not.
