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.

Ummm .... ok? There are lots of things in life "that should just go away" but they won't. You can wish in one hand and poop in the other, and see which happens first.

Hehe, didn't know that one. But yeah, you are right of course, things don't go as one wants them to. Part of the freedom we enjoy ;-)
