Is timeless UI design a thing?(

    Well, I was actually trying to say that any digital UI is probably going to be broken in 15 years due to outdated databases, old OSes, broken links, forgotten languages, and unpaid server bills unless it has been maintained along the way.

    So if the backend technology itself is not timeless — how can the UI be timeless? Why would we want it to be timeless?

    The premise of this article necessitates that software exist in some kind of stasis, but it can't.
