Stuart has a good Tone

Stuart’s post about Tone is a great read.

After reading it, I found myself thinking of one older application I have where, indeed, it says “Your record has been saved.” when the user clicks Save.

New UI design isn’t just happening in Vista – it’s something we can (and should) practice every day. It’s not just about making the application look good, but also making it friendlier for end-users.
