You should read Dan Briklin's weblog. He doesn't post very often but when he does it is always insightful. His recent posting about the notion that you can't push technology beyond where it is useable by humans is a good example. Formula 1 race cars did this and the technology was banded to ensure safety. Most office applications -- those on Lunix as well as Windows -- seem to have reached this point. Perhaps they shouldn't be described as feature laden. Perhaps it is simpler to say that they surpass normal human capacity to utilize. The F1 car crashes into the wall and the court papers' sections' numbering mysteriously begin at 27.
