Graphics, User Interfaces "We're able to produce absolutely stunning websites and mobile apps with great interaction design. Interfaces that are smooth and fun and let us understand information without even trying. But when it comes to email clients, we get a bit of a boring feeling, like using an old piece of software from 10 years ago. I think we can do better. So let's do that." Great ideas and beautiful design by Tobias van Schneider, but why he would forcefully shoehorn this clearly digital UI into Mac OS X is beyond me. It has no place there. This just screams Metro.

This is exactly what XAML allows generally, if you're a purist and follow a design patter to the t.

Often it's a lot more work than what it helps, so I'll settle for something like 80% - 90% frictionless Developer-Designer experiences.

The designer rapid prototyping and iteration is still up there though.
