Love this essay, so true.
Though I use Ulysses and haven’t seen the problems the author describes.
One of the elements that makes fast software fast is that you instinctually know how to use it. You think a thing, and that thing happens. You're barely consciously aware of your fingers having moved.
Conversely, it's frustrating when want something to happen and then have to think – or look up in documentation – how to make it happen. And it knocks you out of flow when you think a thing and something else happens.
