Which company has the most design "taste"?

If the tool is very poorly designed you may not be able to find even the most basic options. Save button? It's located on a button bar that's only visible when you press a button in the lower right corner five times Smile | :)

Seriously, I've seen a program that used a lightblue font on a classic winform background. The program did everything it had to do, but if you didn't know what the buttons did you'd never know because you couldn't read the caption. I've been told the owner of the company who made that software is a little colour blind... To top it off they used a different icon than you're used to for all of the standard stuff. I can't remember what it was, but the save button did not have a diskette, the new button did not have a blank page etc. To show the error log you had to click a button with a picture of an actual bug on it. The icons were completely unrelated. Who could/want ever work with that!? D'Oh! | :doh:
Yeah, design matters...

As for my answer to the poll, Google. I like the way my browser looks (Chrome), I like the way my homepage looks (iGoogle), I like the way my email looks (GMail) and I like the way my favourite search engine looks (Bing, j/k Google Poke tongue | ;-P ).
That doesn't mean I don't like the others, I just like Google a bit more. Oh, by the way, the new metro design just doesn't do it for me...
It's an OO world.
