HN discusses this article:


Seems HN mostly agrees with me today.

For me this is a perfect example of what I wrote about yesterday: the perfect ux design doesn't exist.

In this case the author has gone to great lengths to create a better ux, only be met with “get off my lawn already!”

I sympathize with people who experience unfair criticism of their hard work.

In this case though, I think the criticism is valid: please please please leave our windows scrollbars alone. There's a reason why we use Windows or Linux – and that reason isn't the price in my case but rather that I far prefer Windows and classic (Gnome 2, KDE) Linux ux to Mac ux.
