Graphics, User Interfaces It's been one of my major pet peeves on both Android and iOS: the total and utter lack of consistency. Applications - whether first party or third party - all seem to live on islands, doing their own thing, making their own design choices regarding basic UI interactions, developing their own non-standard buttons and controls. Consistency died five years ago, and nobody seems to care but me.

UI consistency

Even though it was ugly as Hell at least NextStep or OpenStep had a consistent UI for the OS and its apps. GnuStep followed the same model but few embraced the concept in Linux, instead opting for the "other" WM's like KDE and Gnome.

Developing apps for GnuStep is relatively simple since you don't have to reinvent the UI in each new app.
