I simply tried to find a similarity between user interaction (GUI) and
the true potential behind it. I tried to tell that to extract full
potential you need a personalized interaction with the user. If your
interaction with the system is not comfortable nor easy, you cannot
extract the full potential. People with physical disabilities spend more
time trying to click on the title bar that pushing Alt+Button1, and life
is even harder.
And what about the fact that in xfce there are keyboard shorcuts but
not mouse shorcuts? What is the reason for that difference?
I am sorry if you are annoyed by my questions. I think I was simply
trying to tell what was my point of view, and I would like to know what
is yours. I would like to know your reasons to not include mouse
shorcuts. why you cannot comment on that? I cannot find what are your
thoughts about this questions on any FAQ, that's the reason I asked. I
tried to speak, simply that, not confronting positions.

If you don't like cars and are sensible about this question, you can be
sure I'll never use this analogy again. In fact, I neither like cars,
but I though it was an easy analogy to ease understanding for everybody.
