No, you asked what the rationale for the NeXT GUI was.  Somebody thought it 
would be easier to redirect you to a site that explains in detail rather than 
regurgitating the whole thing.

You've got to realize that this discussion has been had over and over and over 
and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and 
over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over 
and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and 
over and over and over and over for the past 5 years or so.  And over that 
period of time, slow but steady progress has been made on changing the 
situtation.  So when you come in here, like a charging bull, some people have 
an itchy trigger finger.
