the post didn't seem rude to me, just blunt in an American and 
Australian style of writing -- admittedly, it can seem rude to others.

but the reference to 'thinkers' was inept but I doubt it was meant to 
imply that _you_ are not a thinker!

I would rather say that the Trinity interface is "really good for 
thinkers," "designed for thinkers," and without prejudice to people 
with other preferences, it can be recommended as such.

(as an aside, I don't see the problem though in calling oneself a 
'thinker'. it's not like boasting of one's humility! and it would be a 
blunder if I thought saying I'm not superficial is saying something 
deep otherwise no problem in it.)

anyway the OP can speak for himself but I hope we don't let this spoil 
good relations.

that said, I wholly concur with his opinion though.

I am also interested in suggestions that enhance function.

and yes, it is time for another contribution.
