| Now if developers can get off of their ego trips and listen to
| usability  experts who have been telling them for the past 30 years
| how to make  software more user-friendly, we might end up with
| computers (and MUA's)  that people use because they want to not
| because they have to.

Having listened to said usability experts and found that all the
software that I like completely breaks at least five of their seven
heuristics, I wouldn't be inclined to take them too seriously... Their
main premise seems to be that "learning is bad". And if you don't want
to learn, you're using the wrong distribution...
