"Intuitive" designs can be cumbersome

I am transitioning from one thread re. "Hierarchical
gui and multiselection" to this one.

There are so many cases in IxD where a certain design
would be
(a) far more easy to use in the long run,
(b) require far less interaction and work on the part
of the user, and
(c)be far less "in the face"

but that design is either non-intuitive or
unconventional.

As a very geeky but pertinent example, consider the
process of finding out the IP address on your client
machine on Windows.
