Graphics, User Interfaces As I already explained in the first Usability Terms article, consistency goes a long way in ensuring a pleasurable user experience in graphical user interfaces. While some user interfaces appear to be more graphically consistent than others, Windows has always appeared to be worse than most others - probably because it carries with it stuff that dates back to the 16bit era. IStartedSomething agrees with this, and started the Windows UI TaskForce.

If this were Slashdot, the story would be tagged with "goodluckwiththat" ;) There are some amazing UI blunders in *all* OSes, and I find them a joy to browse through so I found this a really nice article to read.
