Thank you. "Of computer users". Those who use the machine. Thus, any discussion of "ease of use" must either apply to them, or be limited in such a way as to explicitly exclude them - or simply be pointless hand-waving by the terminally clueless.
Snit is merrily trying at the moment to exclude either entire clbuttes of users, or clbuttes of operations, or both, from the entire discussion - while having completely failed to retract his blanket buttertion regarding ease of use.
Thus, it's easy. Period. End of question. As a blanket absolute. Anything which demonstrates otherwise, for any reason, simply doesn't count for some reason.
How this makes sense is not clear.
Then you'd have a point - buttuming it were. If you were saying that in the face of someone else showing that it in fact *wasn't* easier for them, or might be, but you've completely failed to show it to be true, then your saying so would just look foolish. Sorta like Snit.
Yes, it is. You make a claim X is better, faster, easier, then you *support* the claim. If you can't, or worse, if you completely fail to even try, you just look silly.
Snit's been given *every* opportunity to try, with a concrete example of a real-world task. All he can do is hand-wave and randomly attempt to pretend any exceptions to his rule simply don't count.
By that logic, we can prove all odd numbers are prime. 1, 3, 5, 7, 9, 11, 13, see? Hmm? 9? Doesn't count. Just cuz. All odds *are so* prime. Never mind the exceptions. Is too. Is too. Neener neener.
You're failing to grasp the concept. It isn't about advocacy; it's about Snit making a global, sweeping claim and being absolutely unable to support it, in the face of a concrete, in-your-face contradiction of it, and being unable or unwilling to retract it.

Running around claiming simple falsehoods is not advocacy.
