Talking about 让许多人喜欢,还是兼容所有人的习惯?

  Quote 让许多人喜欢,还是兼容所有人的习惯? 每年这个时候,总会有位Gmail的工程师怀念一下(该地址国内部分地区可能无法正常访问)34年前选定@号作为电子邮件标志的Ray Tomlinson,同时也不忘再谈一下Gmail的设计理念——开发一个让许多人喜欢,而不是一个兼容所有人习惯的webmail! 颇有点醍醐灌顶的感觉,细细想来,却也有点道理:与其臃肿不堪地邯郸学步,还不如真正想想用户的需要,另辟蹊径。Gougou努力地兼容Bloglines的风格和界面,我仍然想不出让我从后者转换到前者的理由,难道只是因为Gougou的界面全中文?Bloglines对中文的支持也不差啊!而MSN Spaces刚出来时,很多人都埋怨其功能太弱,很多设置和当时成名的几家BSP截然不同,令很多人不习惯;可是现在的Spaces已经位列全世界最大的BSP之一,原因就是其简化的功能,让许多人喜欢…… Apple之所以讨人喜欢,也就是因为这一点。从来没有人怀疑过Windows在世界的普及率,诸如“开始”菜单、磁盘整理之类的设定深入人心;可是Mac OS X依然以自我为中心,完全不考虑Windows Switcher的习惯,什么“开始”菜单、磁盘整理的,都没有,这并不妨碍它成为全世界最优秀的操作系统之一。 Longhorn也许真地很出色——全新的图形接口造就了毫不逊色Aqua的华丽界面,重新整合的编程接口也使程序的开发变得更加易如反掌,当然还应该有更加稳定的系统核心,让我们不再经常看见亲近的“蓝屏”。遗憾的是,Longhorn还是Windows,界面的变化并没有改变系统的布局和使用的方法,接口的整合不过是对原有核心的修修补补,我看不见太新的东西……Mac OS X的诞生无疑更激动人心:新的界面,新的核心,新的接口,新的一切——从Mac OS到X的变化完全是一场革命,不是一次简单的进化。Windows做不到,因为它要照顾所有人的使用习惯;Apple恰恰是在创造受人喜欢的东西。 我想,产品的存在难道仅仅是兼容所有人的习惯?那样的产品有什么乐趣?做点讨人喜欢的吧!
