I’m watching a livestream from the FrontEndConference in Zürich.
The current talk is about the Windows–Style UI. I like it. Did I mention my sympathy for simplicity?
I’m thinking about switching from OSX back to Windows, or at least installing Windows 8 on my iMac. The design of Apple’s hardware has the same roots as the Metro UI: cleanliness and usability.
On the other hand, Apple’s software got bloated with glassy reflections, leather texture and torn–away–paper. That’s visual overhaul for somebody who has to work with it 10–12 hours a day with it (like me).
(Skeu.it is a blog about exactly that)
