Vague (1)

Article is very vague and made up of vague anecdotes, none of the research seemed to be empirical or scientific in any way.

Overall it's rubbish.

Researchers often showed users how to achieve their goals - this IMHO means the OS has failed because the user couldn't find their way without assistance. In reality this would of entailed lots of frustration and swearing as things didn't work as expected.
