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.

GNOME is very good at consistency.

*If* ... you only use GTK+ apps.

Likewise you could say Windows is relatively consistent if they just stuck with ONE of their numerous toolkits instead of using different at random.... oh well.
