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.

Heeey... we still have the runes. And it is not an alphabet. It is a fu├żark (kewl, ALT GR + t works for thorn). Alphabet is that silly thing the monks brought with 'em.

The latin alphabet is largely unchanged, at least in regard to capital letters (or bookstaves).

But not for several millennia ...well, OK, there is some ambiguity of meaning with that word, but it usually tends to mean more than 2 or 3 (with "few" used more for smaller amounts). Making Latin borderline, at best (plus still unusual, with relative longevity; NVM largely incomprehensible past ~font styles that I mentioned)
