OK. If I am a software developer then Elvis still lives. So maybe this is all reinventing the wheel. I don't know.


Anyway. I find Unity in ubuntu very counter-intuitive. It feels weird.

Yet it is meant to be the latest thing/fad/trend to make me happy. No evidence. No measurements. No tests. I am just meant to be a "happy" Unity user. So, what about this:

1. the distance the mouse travels across the screen to use a GUI
                  2. the number of mouseclicks.
                  3. the clock time taken to do task x.

1 + 2 + 3 = user figure for a GUI. The lower the score the better.

All you guys here who make software. Do you do any measurements like this to arrive at the usability of software such as a GUI or anything else? Or is it just Macbeth Witches style chuck in eyes of newt, frog legs, pigs' blood and basil into the cauldron and hope for the best?
