We're attacking this wrong - we're hackers.  And, hackers are the only
people that can implement what newbies want, HOWEVER, a hacker is
virtually incapable of understanding the nature of a newbie, just as a
newbie has no idea why a hacker likes computers...  Now, we are incapable
of understanding what a newbie wants, then >>WHY<< are we trying to design
an interface for newbies?  We need to go to a win95 list, and pick out a
pack of newbies to tell us what to make.  Get them over into a list, have
them write up what they want, we laugh, and do what we can.  TTYL!
