Graphics, User Interfaces As I already explained in the first Usability Terms article, consistency goes a long way in ensuring a pleasurable user experience in graphical user interfaces. While some user interfaces appear to be more graphically consistent than others, Windows has always appeared to be worse than most others - probably because it carries with it stuff that dates back to the 16bit era. IStartedSomething agrees with this, and started the Windows UI TaskForce.

This is actually completely amazing me. It is completely out of context in any way, shape or form from either the parent comment (mine) or the original article. Someone literally clicked the comments section, completely ignored both the link, summery, and virtually every other comment on the page. He then proceeded to write something which might be considered mildly insightful if it WERE taken in the right context, and it was still 2006.

That is bad enough, what blows my mind is that there were 3 other people who saw something completely inane, but noticing it had Microsoft and DRM in the same paragraph, decided it was clever, and voted it up.

I remember when we used to make fun of the slashdot readership. Guess what guys, we have become yet another gibbering horde of idiots.
