Graphics, User Interfaces How would I describe today's GUIs? A mess. -- A mess that grew as new features were needed, with lack of proper design, with a desire to keep backward compatibility, and with tools from the past trying to achieve future needs. I propose a new design philosophy for GUIs. We'll call it Vermaden's GUI. Note: This is the latest entry in our 2008 article contest.

It takes forever to create a good UI and im not even there yet with my own program. I imagine things to take really long time to get right no matter what GUI api that are being used. To make matters worse if there are inconsistencies between GUI apis/distos/themes it will take even longer time. Good things take valuable time.
