Graphics, User Interfaces How would I describe today's GUIs? A mess. -- A mess that grew as new features were needed, with lack of proper design, with a desire to keep backward compatibility, and with tools from the past trying to achieve future needs. I propose a new design philosophy for GUIs. We'll call it Vermaden's GUI. Note: This is the latest entry in our 2008 article contest.

"why does everything look so different?".


Yeah as opposed to Windows where everything looks perfectly consistent.

Despite Mac OS X' strides, it's still Gtk+/GNOME that reigns supreme when it comes to graphical consistency. Windows is somewhere at the bottom of the chain, and Vista only made it worse.
