RE: Gary's Recollections of Delta

Arghh!  Yes, those wizards drive me nuts.

As a "high-tech" software company we are trying to do everything possible to
obviate the need for wizards.  The problem is that wizards are so easy to
code that it becomes the first solution that people bring up.  It's my
belief that proper coding, user interface design and using the horsepower
these new processor give you allows applications to be built that do not
need wizards.

just my opinionated opinion.

Talking about history repeating itself ...

Has anyone ever noticed that all these "wizards" appearing
in products get us back to asking lots of questions just as you
had to do with command line apps for timesharing systems?
