Comment: Not a true test (Score 1) 537

by anasciiman (#41740023) Attached to: Are Windows XP/7 Users Smarter Than a 3-Year-Old?

Everyone knows that children younger than five are adept at learning nearly anything you wish to teach them. So this isn't a true test of how easy Win8 is to use. To make a legitimate test, you'd have to select a person (or group of people) whose age is well beyond the toddler stage and, most likely, a senior citizen who's never used a computer before. THEN you might have the basis for a legitimate test. Of course, the test will have to be more than just opening a video or picture album. You'd have to prove usability in several common areas such as email, web, video chat and the like.

Dynamically binding, you realize the magic. Statically binding, you see only the hierarchy.
