wondering why i’m always so, um, worried in the absense of designers/artists for the thing i’m developing? isn’t that the thing that attracts so many geeks to command line interface and therefore linux/unix?
i.e. to get the feeling of completeness and satisfaction i require from the thing not to *just work*, but to be nice and convenient. that’s why lots of things are never shown to the public, if only as the screenshots. and that’s why i *don’t like* the user interface of most programs – either graphical or command-line.
