RE: Why a poor user interface can make users happy
Also reminds me of the QWERTY/DVORAK issue. Dvorak keyboard is by all measures a superior layout: puts the commonest letters in the home row, takes common letter sequencing into account, and has repeatedly been show to be easier to learn, easier to type, and results in fewer mistakes. Yet the QWERTY is the industry standard and will likely never change.
