Current ui paradigms in OS use things we 'have already learned in life' - such as pressing buttons, stacking things on top of one another, reading lists, associating pictures wi actions etc. etc. etc.

So, would I prefer An os GUI that uses my personal habits to tailor its icons, menus, etc, to make it 'easier' for me to use? Not particularly. With consistency comes familiarity, and so ease of use.

It might seem like a good idea but people don't generally have a problem learning the basics of an OS ui, because there is cross platform consistency, so moving from Mac to windows to Linux is generally quite easy because of the similarities in the presentation.

Use a learning ui paradigm and the user would struggle more in moving from OS to OS Neil the new one had learned from them. And the majority of computer users are using the computer as a tool to perform some function, and are not software devs or geeks who want something more.
