Obviously, someone seems to think so. Not everyone has worked with Macs
since 1984. I just moved over to Mac's from PC's and if OS 8 was what I had
to start on, it could be helpful. I bet that's probably one of the things
that that "someone" had in mind. I guess you'll have to live with it. Maybe
Mac could release an advanced user OS so you don't have to look at the word
Help on the menu bar.
