Trying to Be a Good CitizenIn the beginning, I was only interested in downloading as much free software as possible :) And I was getting all sorts of warez and so on. But, as I matured in my career, I saw that ripping off software or music or video was generally wrong. (I didn't always stop doing it though!) Anyway, when I find a software that I like (Project URL Snooper), now I try to support the developer. I'm currently unemployed at the moment (I got downsized last year) so I'm still trying to be generous to developers who depend on donations for all or part of their living.

The OSNews blog once again brings us a fascinating article on the modern history of user interfaces. This time it's an older essay about the user interface design for Windows 95.
However you feel about Windows 95, there's no denying that its user interface is probably one of the most iconic and well-known user interfaces ever designed and developed. Literally everyone knows it and has used it, and it singlehandedly defined what a personal computer's UI should work like. It's incredibly fascinating to read about the thought processes behind its development.
