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.

Spot on. A crude and simplistic version at that, because on the earliest systems carrying GUI's, resources were extremely limited.

These days, we have oodles of resources available to display so much more than these early UI's, so more refined and realistic versions become possible.
