lets make a deal, unless you or me have an degrea on usability  lets refrain 
from using the word ok?
I have actually asked the people that do know about the subject of "usability" 
in this case, and their remarks were not exactly the ones you are expecting.

As i said i have no idea how this went since we talked to the nitrogen guy 
and we agreed that he wold work directly in oxygen, so I have no idea how this 
I love options as long as we don't create a "baghira UI" to configure oxygen 
and the options are easy to understand for Joe user its great.
