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.

That is such a really, really great idea. now why did someone else not think of that...
oh hold on, they did....

it just took forever for some one at microsoft to listen to use end users, who know nothing what so ever about an OS, even though we use it on a daily basis.

AFAICT, Long Zheng is not from Microsoft. I have no idea how he knows what has been fixed for Win7 and what has not been fixed. I do hope someone from the UX team is paying attention, thought.
