    Bruce "Tog" Tognazzini, who was Apple's 66th employee and the writer of its first >human interface guidelines, and Don Norman, Apple's user experience architect >from 1993 to 1996, aren't holding back in the least.

    Hrmmm...I'm not sure '93-'96 was really the heyday of Apple design...this

      Yeah... honestly I think that Mac OS was a pretty weak UX until OS X. OS 9 wasn't bad but there were so many annoying quirks to using a Mac for the longest time. I think Windows was much more intuitive for a long time.

        Not sure I agree with that. A lot of what’s good about OS X came from MacOS 9. And lots of good interface features (spatial Finder) were lost in the transition to OS X. I don’t miss MacOS 9 at all, but it had a lot going for it.

      Tog was at Apple from 1978 to 1992. He was a key software applications designer for the Apple II onward. And Don Norman is one of the authorities on usable interfaces in our industry.
