My guess is no. I generally get blank stares when I first start in to
talk about database concepts. If I start from a spreadsheet some of it
starts to sink in, but that analogy doesn't really apply to a stack. I
think the current paradigm is as close as it gets - everyone's got a
stack of papers in their inbox, some with little post-its on them.
People have been trying to explain the paradigm for twenty years now.
I think Apple still doesn't get it.
