ONE looks complicated, what does this all mean?

At first glance, this screen looks quite daunting because there is a great amount of detail. When faced with complication, usually the best thing to do is to break it down into smaller, more understandable chunks - so this is what we will do: we can thus break the ONE main screen down into seven main distinct areas, each of which is described in detail below. Click on the area in the chart to find out more about that area.
