But Windows has taught people to be lazy...

Maybe "lazy" when it comes to understanding how a computer works, but for most people such knowledge has no bearing on what they need to do with it. Computers are merely tools to further some sort of task, and should not be tasks in themselves.

Without the accesibility of Windows, people would still be grappling with cryptic text files and looking up relevant commands in thick manuals just to get programs to run. Ultimately this wastes the time that should have been spent actually doing what needs to get done, whether it be word processing, presentations, internet, gaming etc.

Most people back then in their futile attempts at scaling these seemingly overwhelming odds either simply gave up or obtained help from some sort of technician or specialist for the simplest of tasks. In the latter case, accesibility empowers the user by allowing him to focus on the task at hand without his intentions being distorted by someone who probably doesn't fully understand them.

Besides, there's still plenty of things to tinker with underneath Window's "lazy" exterior.
