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.

I remember when we used to make fun of the slashdot readership. Guess what guys, we have become yet another gibbering horde of idiots.

I think we are still doing somewhat better than that. We squabble and we argue. And yeah, there is more talking and less listening going on these days. But I have a hunch that there is still hope for us. ;-)
