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
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
