Wasn't this a product used by pilots? Don't pilots fly planes? Do I want
a pilot with one eye out the window and one eye in a manual? Hope this
product doesn't help a pilot to land the plane.

"Give me keyboard or give me death"...or something like that :-)

Besides...keyboard or 50 page manual...who IS complex.
There's nothing wrong with may do complex things! Wanna see
complex? Take a look at the user's manual I just started working on for
the installation and configuration of the Oracle Financials
application...GL, AP, AR, OY VEY!

will be sure to skip them; and in the plainest possible words or he will
certainly misunderstand them.", John Ruskin
