The whole matter is funny. The designer/creator goes for a standard that no one is really using, because that is the very German right thing to do. And then people complain endlessly as if this were a design committee. Well, it is not.

Even though I am interested in following the discussion on various calculator layouts, I have stayed on the sidelines. You are right that this is not a "design committee" and thank goodness it's not. I've spent many years on various design committees that could never come to a single conclusion - they just went on and on and on... re-discussing and rehashing the same thing with nothing being done or accomplished until a single person or couple of people would just take the bull by the horns and do the final report, ignoring most of what had been hashed over. As we like to say at work, there's comes a time when you just have to say "Damn the Engineers, Ship Something!"

I also have a personal policy of NEVER answering any Poll. I do not find that polls are useful and are just a waste of my time. As Walter has found, Yes/No, or A/B polls are very difficult in that people will always have opinions they wish to interject in why they want something else. And the designer of the poll usually already has a preconceived notion of what they want to do. The poll is usually just to see if they are way off base.

There is NO perfect calculator. At this point, I would suggest - stop the polls - ship something!

And then the discussion can start on why everything you did was wrong. Smile
