So you may have seen this elsewhere already, but the Unix-Haters Handbook is now online. After reading Donald Norman's foreword, I went to look for the article he cites:
Norman, D. A. The Trouble with Unix: The User Interface is Horrid. Datamation, 27 (12) 1981, November. pp. 139-150. Reprinted in Pylyshyn, Z. W., & Bannon, L. J., eds. Perspectives on the Computer Revolution, 2nd revised edition, Hillsdale, NJ, Ablex, 1989.
eventually finding it it in a shar archive in a message in a unix-wizards archive in Google cache. To make it slightly easier to index in future, here's a link to the unpacked messages. rumor.shrink is the original article, it appears.
