Regarding the Touch Bar:
- if I buy a computer with it (and spend more money), I expect it to bring
much joy to the use of my new laptop;
- if I am not satisfied with the Bar, I cannot remove it physically from
the computer, it stands there and lights up every once in a while,
reminding me how well I spent my money;
- I could use the 30-day money-back guarantee option, but that one might
not be available in my region (and requires some additional effort and
potentially even cost on my side).
Regarding the LO UI-type change:
- I haven't spent any money on the new UI, it is already present in
previous versions, maybe I even played with it before (or have it enabled)
and it is already described in all of the documentation;
- if I do not like the new interface, I can switch back to the old one (OK,
some users with basic computer knowledge might have a problem with that, so
they need to be assisted in some way by a wizard or some UI tool);
- *if I am not mistaken* - this would only change for users without a user
profile, i.e. without previous versions of LO installed - all others would
get the UI they used with the old/previous version of LO? So if they are
not used to LO and come from MSO, the notebookbar might seem a more logical
choice for starting the software for the first time.
Of course, there will be users fighting about which UI is better, but ... de
gustibus non disputandum est.
