Have all UI designers gone insane? (Warning: very short post)
« on: September 15, 2011, 02:55:01 PM »
Full quote:

Have all UI designers gone insane? Ribbons, Windows 8, obsession with touch and gestures, a few aspects of KDE4, Unity, Gnome3...

Thankfully a mix of KDE's Plasma Desktop and some good GTK2 apps is pretty sane (if space-consuming and unusual) for now.
Source

Short quote. No idea what Plasma Desktop is. Just got too much of a chuckle to not share a topic here.

If thread disappoints, hopefully this link: If Programming Languages were religion makes up for it. Source also from Subjot but diff. user.

I'm no coder but I enjoyed that one - gave me a better understanding of code languages.

Maybe not the languages ... maybe the folk that use 'em  ;)?

That was hilarious. I loved this one best:

Yeah, I felt like I should have a word or two with the genius behind the ribbon, but was postponing it till I will absolutely definitely should and must and have to move out of the xp+office 2003 ecosystem. Sometime after 2015 I mean.
