Yeah, though at some point consumers need to get up and try a little
harder. I have little sympathy for people who want their computer and
blender to have the same UI and failure modes.
That's just irrational.
It doesn't help that we have a bunch of idiots trying to tell them that
this is possible.
I don't know many consumers who feel like an 18-wheeler should be as
easy to drive as a Honda Civic, so why do they think a computer should
be no more difficult than a toaster?
I can only imagine its partly the promises they've been given, and some
false associations they make between a computer and other devices.
