True... But I don't know where else to go.


Nokia looks for representative users where they can be found. You know, companies doing serious market research and usability tests do that.

We take maemo.org with a grain of salt, just like any other singular source.
Okay, well that's good to know.

I really hope you're sitting down with some complete novices and watching very carefully where they get confused or lost. I have to do that regularly for friends and family with many different devices, it really does open your eyes to what works and what doesn't in a user interface.

Some visual concepts are grasped by most people almost immediately, and these are what a good interface is made of.
