's a nice article that touches some interesting toppics on UI design for desktop applications.

There is a lot of software out there with horrible user interfaces, and we really

Not a lot is published on the subject of UI design & UI theory, so experience driven information like the one in the article is very helpful in designing a better user interface.
Over at NiXPS we are in the midst of preparing a new release of our NiXPS View application, and we encountering a lot of these conundrums ourselves. We are building a better UI, and we are very happy with how our next release is getting along. I'm going to show you some of this in a next post.
