Graphics, User Interfaces "We're able to produce absolutely stunning websites and mobile apps with great interaction design. Interfaces that are smooth and fun and let us understand information without even trying. But when it comes to email clients, we get a bit of a boring feeling, like using an old piece of software from 10 years ago. I think we can do better. So let's do that." Great ideas and beautiful design by Tobias van Schneider, but why he would forcefully shoehorn this clearly digital UI into Mac OS X is beyond me. It has no place there. This just screams Metro.

Member since:

That is what XAML was meant to be for - programmers could focus on the heavy lifting backend whilst the front end could be worked on by experts in usability and design. Same can be done in the case of Mac OS X where backend and front end are separated rather than intermingled together.

So what happens if you're the programmer and don't have a designer working for you? I guess you're fundamentally boned. At least with Windows Forms and VB6, this wasn't really an issue.

As for the article in question, I can't really comment on it since I am visually impaired, and I can't use my screen reader, since the author made the whole f**king web page an image.
