Years and years ago I bounght one of those digital cameras that featured a 10-hour hard disk -- it had enough controls to fly an aircraft -- my favorite one was a red button with the legend "simple" -- when you pressed this, it deactivated most of the other controls (apart from start/stop recording and zoom in/out) and did everything automatically.
I loved that button
I think it's a great idea to have a "Simple Mode" in an IDE to get you up-and-running
totally aggre Max, once a chinese proffesor told me when i was taking and advanced control course, "the simplest that works" in response to an inquiry that ask for more models and all the math associated with advanced control.
sometimes i tell my son ( an engineering student) if a switch lets you control, use it! thanks TI !!!
