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.

Well, there's nothing stopping you from using the command line.

For most people except the computery savvy geek(not meant offensive!) the socalled "bloat" helps them learn and understand the userinterface.

(Well there are exceptions such as the transparent menubar, and overglossy reflective dock in Leopard.)
