SCO argue otherwise: You only have to claim ownership, not actually have even the vaguest title to it.
Or at least an order of magnitude less acceptable than slapping your customers round the face with a wet fish.
Why did anyone need to do any research to discover that this was the optimal way of pissing of web users?
You might want to get out a bit more, sonny.
Every day we have stories about children travelling to the Middle East to be child brides to terrorists. Just think of the orgasms news editors get from this one! (Sorry).
Even if a UI isnt very good, a COMPULSORY change always. If the UI stinks to hell, but it works, it is ALWAYS better to keep it. No one is against optional changes. No people can buy other wierd (Dvorak) keyboards if theyw ant. But they are not the answer to most people's requirements.
Most USERS are strongly opposed to having raw fish rammed down their throat against their will. Most "new improved" UI's appear to lack support for important use cases the inventors had not realised existed (or were opposed to on religious grounds).
As for the mad fucks that keep inventing new icons. I wish horrible things happen to them. Its bad enough having to learn about Icons when I learned to read perfectly well over 60 years ago. Why do they not keep the ones they have invented? Are they smoking something I should know about?

Only because there are so many/much more demonic activities they have indulged in.
Yes sirree! The real message here is MS know damn well they cant deliver code of the same quality as BSD code.
It was not (necessarily) "Free as in Beer" - you might pay very big bucks for the OS, but the code was open. (EG RSX11, BSD, Ultrix, George 2, 3, 4, OS9).
In many countries, there is no such thing as cable. In others cable is limited to a few blocks of a few cities. America is not the whole world.
Meanwhile, my Chromecast has become useless. Not sure whether it is sabotage by Samsung or blunders by Google, or maybe ineptly implemented copyright protection: I can use the (Samsung) phone to point the Chromecast at Youtube, but as soon as I actually try to watch a video, connection is lost!
It was not like that a few months ago (we loaned the Chromecas to a neighbour for a few months).
I dont watch much on TV, cos it is much easier to use a desktop computer anyway, and I never watch American films, but occasionally it is a family activity. These days far less frequently as the providers seem not to understand that viewers get bored of strugging to view crap.
