A play on the common term "user-friendly", a user-hostile design is one that is, deliberately or accidentally, difficult or cumbersome for the intended user.

Often used derisively to describe the competition.
We intend to improve upon the user-hostile design of your existing sales tool.

Some say that the user-hostile design of the original QWERTY keyboard was an intentional effort to slow typists down so as not to allow them to jam the mechanical parts.

Sep 17 Word of the Day
Fredagsmys is pretty much the most holy tradition of Sweden. The word origins from two words; “fredag” and “mys”, which roughly translates to Friday and cozy. Every Friday, all Swedes drive by the supermarket to buy ingredients for taco, soda and chips. Then, they all sit down in their sofas with their families or friends and watch telly. Usually, the parents fall asleep after a few glasses of wine or beer while the kids stuff themselves with chips until they have a stomach ache.
