Question

In the abstract, I support the egalitarian ideal of allowing everyone access to technology and making that tech easier for them to use.

In the concrete when it makes my life worse, I wish we’d not ever let stupid people use computers – because it really harms me. All of this push to take away browser features, to make some atrocity like Windows 8, to even have a browser like Google Chrome –- all of this can be blamed on attempting to make things simple enough that complete morons can use them.

Which removes most of the features that I actually use and depend on, both for work and for leisure.

Using a “stupid people” OS or browser slows me down so incredibly much it makes me even slower than them, as I have to try to come up  with ridiculous workarounds to get even basic work done.
