Ask Slashdot: When Is the User Experience Too Good?

danielk1982 You're just wrong ... (397 comments)

I can create an application that displays a big red button on the desktop which, when pressed, will completely wipe the hard drive without an annoying modal confirmation dialog box. Sure it'll give great "user experience" to those that would like to wipe their drive but is that reason enough to install and use something like this on a daily basis?

Giving users easy access to something destructive is not good UX design. It's the definition of bad UX design.

Windows 7 "Not Much Faster" Than Vista

danielk1982 Windows 7 being equivalent to Windows Vista in ... (821 comments)

performance is not a bad thing. By the time Windows 7 is released, 3 years would have elapsed since Vista's release. Computers are better and cheaper. Discount brands give you at least a dual-core cpu with 2Gb of RAM. Windows 7 won't have the issue of being pre-installed on hardware that can't give it reasonable performance.

I don't think any less of the ancient Greeks for their mythology.
