"more intuitive once you get used to it" is a contradiction. To me 'intuitive' applied to software means it works the way you expect the very first time, and you don't have to get used to anything.

Exactly. Freaking "rocket science" is intuitive if you are a rocket scientist...

I have been using a mouse for almost 20 years now, and I can't imagine anything simpler. But the mouse confused the heck out of my 70 year old stepmom who had never touched a computer (not even an ATM) in her life... She would lift the mouse up off the table to move the cursor up. To her - UP was UP! Not Up was Forward....

It is all relative.

I say that RPN is annoying as hell. So I don't use it. That is the beauty of our world. We use what we want... I would rather use the 28 keystrokes and make something that looks usable than use less and make it cryptic and confusing to 90% of the people who look at it... But if RPN is nice for you, by all means - use it...

Just like the two button mouse.
