there's this vast gulf between newbie UIs that emphasize discovery and guard rails and stuff and then expert UIs like clis and things like trading terminals and bridging that gap is really hard and no one does it, it's basically this usability bathtub curve

That big thing some years back when everyone discovered chatbots was neat because chatbots can do a pretty good job straddling that gap.

I saw this project a while ago that was bascially a CLI with a gui layered over it in what was basically intellisense for bash or whatever cli thing they were doing and i thought that was really good.

my guess is nobody does it because creating that kind of difficulty gradient would be multiples more expensive than doing both newbie and expert interfaces combined

yeah i mean most people never even get around to an expert mode so yeah

im just sayin is all

the gimp is awful but its also one of the only successfulish open sores programs so any time a linux guy talks about how great open source is they are basically obligated to talk about it and open office
