Graphics, User Interfaces Tobias Bjerrome Ahlin, an interface designer at Spotify, is a big believer in skeuomorphism. Whereas Apple is a strong advocate of this design concept, Microsoft is clearly moving in the exact opposite direction, while Android is in the process of moving away from skeuomorphism entirely, to a more digital experience. As a passionate hater of skeuomorphism in UIs, I found Ahlin's examples to be a bit weak.

This is why I prefer to use CLI as much as possible. My colours, my preferred font, my preferred #333333 backdrop, everywhere!!

Seriously though, good write-up, Thom. I agree with almost everything you've written.
