my day to day drudgery sees me in contact with people who, after years of using a computer, cannot copy and paste a link.

Yeah, that right click is so difficult...it's clearly a windows problem and not a user education problem.


Old people suck at this. I've explained to dozens how to cut and paste. Somehow years go by and, whether I show them keyboard shortcuts, right clicking or even using menus they still miss it.

Plenty of people out there are too afraid of possibly blowing their computer up to do anything even as rudimentary as cut and paste. They're convinced they'll somehow change a setting that makes the computer never turn on again.

Are they a dying audience? Maybe. But they've all flocked to iOS.
