'Impossible To Make Head Or Tail Of'

Cons: Completely without any CLEAR and COMPREHENSIBLE Help. Utterly unusable in the circumstances. Diabolically complex and totally counter-intuitive interface.
Other Thoughts: I simply CANNOT understand why any developer would even think of producing something so complex and then offering users NO useful assistance in understanding how to configure it, understand it, or use it. Presumably one needs a post-doctorate degree in astronomy or astrophyics to make head or tail of it. And I am not alone in not being able to understand it all. See comments on MacUpdate
