Intuitiveness: In most cases intuitiveness just means I already use it. So, again, OS becomes "intuitive" when we use it and the more we use GAFAM the more intuitive it becomes --- especially bc it's their business model! We need to become maladjusted to their intuitiveness. Where intuitiveness is real usability, OS needs to constantly improve, but that requires support and inter-cooperation.
