comment Should I add sound effects to my web site?
These comments and answers are mostly knee-jerk reactions to sound poorly implemented on sites. It can be done well, subtly, at only the right moments.

comment Synonym for 'GUI' for non-technical people?
It's not about separating the program from the GUI. For any program to be useful to humans it must have an interface; that interface may be graphical or it may not.

comment Synonym for 'GUI' for non-technical people?
I would say "program" is the wrong word to choose. When I hear program I think of the code that is executing. In my experience, most people understand the words "app" and "interface".
