What I mean is something like; all the information at a certain 
abstraction level is visible on one screen or one piece of paper,
and not is available through multiple screen / multiple right-clicks 
etc. A wizard in general is an example of strong non-flatness of  
information  (try adding a mail-account in Thunderbird, this could 
easily be put on 1 page, which clearly would give a much better overview).

cheers,
Stef
