Graphics, User Interfaces Ever since I bought my HTC HD7 way back in October 2010, I have been hooked on Windows Phone. Without even being able to test-drive the new operating system (The Netherlands didn't get Windows Phone 7 until a year later), I imported the HD7 from the US - the minimalist, stark, clean, flat, and textual interface spoke to me, and I just knew I would like it. And like it, I did.

yeah, its a terrible, terrible, terrible labeling system that completely distracts from the discussion Thom is trying to start. It couldn't be worse labeling, I'd take Bieber UI vs Gaga UI over this nonsense.

You're obsessing over the wrong details, and Thom is essentially right here: It's about Skeuomorphism (modeling the analog world) versus Digital (modeling digital design).
