Try removing all salt from your recipies, then say that spice isn't important.
Indeed? Salt is one of those things we use too much and using it more sparingly actually would be healthy. The primary function of eating still is to stay alive, not to enjoy the great taste. That's just a bonus.
That said, I pick for a specific purpose as well, and they need to do that
purpose and not drive me up a wall in doing so. It was like the first time I was
forced to use emacs while in school. "Wait, I have to hit what combination to
save? Ctrl+x then Ctrl+s? Or was it Ctrl+W then Ctrl+s? Or was it v? Why can't
it just have a menu and a 'Save' function?"
You want functionality and tools that fit well to your needs? Nothing against that. But I don't need all kinds of eye candy or devices with ornamental cases made of precious metals and decorated with diamonds. I don't intend to show off with them and actually rarely look at them at all. Instead I intend to use them and am far more interested in how far the insides of the cases will bring me.
At least artificial intelligence already is superior to natural stupidity
Here's a hard to beat combination (on the software front): Google ingenuity, Apple UX and Microsoft tooling. If I could develop for Android (which sported Apple's look and feel) using Visual Studio, I think I'd have died and gone to heaven.
