It isn't just software. Increased casual-user-friendliness in general has
been the trend for some years now in everything from your bank's ATM to
your home theater system. Every step in that direction makes products more
complex "under the hood," which often includes the user interface for
advanced users. Try searching the internet for the secret service code for
your cell phone, DVD player or cable box and get a look at the "hidden" UI
that is often several times larger than the one you're using as a consumer
and is also undocumented for the consumer but not for its intended user.
In the case of Office, it may be that the person paying for the additional
instructions, tutorials and documentation to use the program beyond its
most basic levels is going to be you, when you log onto Amazon. for your
copy of "Mastering Office 2010."
