Having rejected DOS, we're paranoid about anything that isn't
"user-friendly," that requires some adjustment on our part and a

a bridle and set of leather reins to his Model T instead of a steering
wheel and clutch, and to this day we were still driving our cars the way
a 19th century groomsman would handle a horse and buggy.
