All was an one-finger operation. No palms involved (I know my limitations
when challenging the Gods ;-)

Yes. Not always easy, but...

Oh, sorry. No, this was a "generic you". And...

...by the way, not criticising your tone or something. You come across
as an extremely polite person.

Rather trying to raise awareness that many of the patterns we take for
granted are just the result of some training, which might be totally
different for someone else.

Of course, one might argue that we all should be trained the same way
(it happens with other things too, like language (verbal and non-verbal),
so why not with computers?). Opinions on that might differ. For me this
is dystopia, especially in the current context, where roughly ten big
corps dominate that space.
