The Skeumorphic Design is pretty ugly, in my opinion too. As to "who cares what you think"... Then who cares what YOU think? He's as entitled to his opinion, and expressing it, as you are. Liberty of expression is not restricted to jragosta only, you know.
Besides, you're (I believe, on purpose, but you might be honestly mistaken) confusing two very different things under the same "design" word:
- aesthetics, which are dependent on the observer (as well as his cultural environment)
- usability, in which Apple's experience does play a tremendous role
Critics, among which I am, of the skeumorphic designs, obviously distate their aesthetics chiefly. Your ad-hominem argument on his personal expertise doesn't stand.
He's calling everyone a troll when he's the one, unable to stand a debate without insulting.
Truly the "who cares what you think" on a forum is just ridiculous, it defeats the whole point of a forum lol
I like the skeuomorphic design, but it's not something I couldn't live without. And many people in the tech world don't like it.
