Reminds me of an old saying in systems engineering: you can create
interlocks for everything until you get to the point that everything
stops, i.e. the final interlock.
Perhaps this is something similar: combines everything from all the
other M$ "operating" systems(1) and you get something that doesn't
work at all.
1. Whenever I refer to an M$ system like Windows, et al, I always put
quote around operating, since it is highly debateable that they
actually work properly.
To say that something is 'nonessential' is to say that
it is 'unnecessary.'
GUIs, while nice, are nonessential.
