Another terrible argument

By | December 26, 2013

It’s a truly terrible argument that because children can use Windows 8 more easily than a start menu-based or similar more complex OS that that somehow makes it a good OS for me to use.

Children can also drive a Big Wheel more easily than a full-size vehicle. That doesn’t mean I should start commuting to work in a Big Wheel.

It’s amazing to me that those who make that argument cannot see how incoherent and idiotic it is.

I also found it much easier to use my playtoy Fisher Price hammer when I was a kid than an adult hammer. Should I now continue using that any time I need to pound a nail?

Even if I were a supporter of a phone or tablet interface on a desktop, I would not use such illogical arguments to advocate for it. How people’s minds can operate so poorly I will never understand.
