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.

Non-resizable windows

The things that annoy me the most are non-resizable windows when they would come in very handy.

A good example is the dialog where you can edit your environment variables. This is plain shit. I even installed a tool ("Weve") to get this better.
