Not only writing code is much more time consuming than configuring, but options never conflict, while there is no way to make arbitrary extensions not conflict.
Sorry, but this post contains so much nonsense I don't even know where to start. Probably from the beginning.
- Not only writing code is much more time consuming than configuring — nope. You can only configure something if someone else coded that something first and provided options to configure it, too!
- Options never conflict — have you done any software development at all? Options conflict all the time — and these conflicts must be resolved by program developers, but extension writers. And their number is limited. That's why software evolves from the options to extensions.
- Think about it - even moving an icon requires someone to write code. Ridiculous. No other UI has that kind of limitation. — Hmm… I know, I'm dumb (noone contradicted this statement yet so it's probably just me). Can you point me to step-by-step instruction which explains how to move icons in one of three products:
When you'll present such howtos you'll have a point.
- iOS home screen
- MS Office 2010 ribbon toolbar
- Android's list of applications
