Well, I just came acrooss it, but that was discussed aphew weexago
(acnea - not very TW).

On a "Are you sure you want to delete it" dialog box, there are five
buttons (the fifth seems really the cutest)
Yes / Yes to All / No / Cancel / Help

There are GUI messers around, that cannot think properly about
usability. Next cubicle, there's a developer that built a two-menu
window, with 25 commands on the first, and 2 on the second (Options and
Help), and now reorganizes the first one every odd week.

As TWs, we can be the thermometer: when it takes hours to understand the
GUI, and pages to explain the thing, then we face an
oddGUIthatllbemisunderstood symptom (not always, but often).

My opinions are mine, and neither you nor my company can take credit for
them. YOU can cite them if you think they were of use.
