Windows In a recent Channel 9 video, Scoble interviews Jenny Lam, creative lead on the Windows User Experience team. Lamb is responsible for everything from the new 'gem' start button to the latest bliss wallpapers. Some interesting bits: the GUI is finalized (are they sure this time?), Iconfactory is again designing the icons, and Photoshop and Illustrator are the tools of choice.

Vista hype

<Snip>Ever wonder who creates those cool icons, animations, and the general graphical experiences in our products like Windows Vista? </Snip>

To be honest I havenīt ever wondered who created those "cool icons". I somehow just assumed that it would be someone at Microsoft...

But sometimes I really wonder why the bar for what is newsworthy regarding Vista is so low. I know that Vista is an extremely important release for Microsoft.

But will Vista really be that important to the rest of us working in the industry? To be honest I am not that sure.

Will see.
