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.

we get a bit of a boring feeling


I say it slowly, so as everybody can understand:

There is nothing wrong with boring.

Especially with a stable working e-mail client. Boring is good. I don't need thrills with an e-mail client. I need it to have the required functions and do them reliably.

The thrill comes from the e-mails' contents, not from the application that views them... ;)
