Simon Fell > Its just code > Mac UI's

Mac developers in general appear obsessed with usability and appearance, I don't think this is a bad thing, its one of the things that makes using a Mac an enjoyable experience. However for graphically challenged developers such as myself (there's a reason I concentrate on web services :)) it leads to a frustrating number of hours with graphics tools and interface builder. Anyway, the unofficial apple weblog was quick to point out that SF3 isn't pretty, and hey, I'm not going to argue, even more depressing is the fact that there was about 4 different, equally ugly UIs before it. However unlike my first trip into OSX land, there's now a bunch of great blogs and resources for the youngling cocoa developers

Here's what the reworked SF3 UI looks like, still need to do some work on the S Icon/button.
