Apple is "known" for their great UIs and yet it's far more difficult to find things on a damn mac, iphone or ipad than it's ever been on a windows device.
It seems pretty simple:
1. Criminal points gun at law abiding citizen
2. Law abiding citizen points gun back
3. Law abiding citizen pauses to decide if he'll stay a law abiding citizen if he shoots
4. Criminal, who is already a criminal and has little to lose, sees the escalated response and shoots
5. Law abiding citizen is hospitalized and possibly dies.
There are a lot less gun owners that are as well trained how to respond in a situation like this than the NRA would have you believe.
I actually had an NRA member say to me once "Are you afraid that someday I'll protect you with my gun?" No, I'm afraid you will get both of us shot because you're trying to be a hero while you happen to be standing near me.
Do you remember how many years and versions it took to finally get rid of Clippy?
Relevant to all the other posts telling me it's my own fault for having so many toolbars with cryptic icons, my response to you here is this: Why did it take you so long? I found the menu option and turned off Clippy within about 30 seconds of desiring to do so.
I think the real problem here for you is that you are averse to change. Your complaints remind me of all the folks on Facebook complaining when they change the UI because "the old style is way better", and then a year later when Facebook updates again, same story. The one they had before (which everyone once hated) is suddenly the shining example of a design masterpiece, and the new version "sucks donkey nuts."
So you're right, they defend "their" liberties -- but they are completely irresponsible toward the rest of the liberties that don't currently apply to their situation.
