Graphics, User Interfaces "In this article I'm going to talk about what flat design is, review what other designers are saying about it, and offer some tips on how to achieve it in your own designs." I give you one attempt to guess which 'design aesthetic' the next version of OSNews is inspired by. And yes, we will eventually get it done.

It's the basic principle of humans-get-bored-of-things-very-easily.
For some reason, after Winamp, no one has bothered trying to write anything designed to be skinnable.

Hm, but they did bother - remember WindowBlinds from Stardock? Also audio players, Sonique or Kjofol, both much more skinnable than Winamp; the entire shape & form of the UI could be changed in them...

...but, I guess, by then humans-got-bored (or maybe it meant that ugly skins are too easy to make?)
