Software Usability is All That Matters

Written by Mike Banks Valentine

GUI, or Graphic User Interface isrepparttar term tossed about by technology geeks to definerepparttar 133600 only thing that matters torepparttar 133601 rest of us. How we interact and deal with our software is entirely determined by programmers based upon instructions they receive from whomever hired them to do their jobs. Their job is to make software use easy, obvious - even invisible.

I don't want to know how computers work. Don't care inrepparttar 133602 least! I only want them to work. I don't want to become a geek in order to visit a web site. I don't want or need instructions fromrepparttar 133603 geek that designedrepparttar 133604 web site about howrepparttar 133605 page was coded or what server software they use. I don't want to know anything about my car, my computer, my home appliances or even my wrist watch. I just want them to do their job without breaking and without cryptic error messages meant for software engineers.

I have owned and happily used four or five generations of Apple Macintosh computers for precisely these reasons. Those machines have happily answered all of my needs, and forrepparttar 133606 most part, run allrepparttar 133607 software I have bought and loaded into them without a hiccup. If there was a goofy message onrepparttar 133608 screen telling me there was a problem, I calledrepparttar 133609 support phone number onrepparttar 133610 box or onrepparttar 133611 web site and got instructions about how to makerepparttar 133612 message go away.

Whenever technology is new, users of that technology must become experts inrepparttar 133613 inner workings of it to be users, expertise is often required. Now thatrepparttar 133614 personal computer has passed its twentieth birthday, it's time to stop talking about users as experts and for users to simply be users. Mac OS X is another very proper step in that direction.

I attended Seybold San Francisco, where I heard Steve Jobs intro- duce Mac OS X (that's Operating System Ten). I loved that this apparently powerful guy came on stage at a keynote address in his faded jeans and tennis shoes. Here is a human being I can relate to who dresses as I do even if he can easily afford to outdress me. Here is a guy that makes computers do their job so I don't have to.

Jobs then introduced Phil Schiller, Apple's vice president of Worldwide Product Marketing, also dressed casually, to discuss allrepparttar 133615 new goodies in OS X and show off its increased speed sincerepparttar 133616 March 2001 release. System 10.1 is now so much faster that you don't noticerepparttar 133617 machine taking time to "think" when you open a program.

As it should be.

Also, as it should,repparttar 133618 user interface offers a wonderfully easy to comprehend tool bar incorporating their powerful graphics engine to provide on-screen imagery that, as always, makes you smile while subtly showing you what is happening as you click stuff. It's fast, it makes me smile and you don't have to be a geek to get it. That's for me. I want it.
