It’s been quite some time since I commented on this thread, so I apologize in advance for this. After a couple of weeks and some good answers from some in our SW community frankly I brushed it aside because my original post had somehow been misinterpreted to mean "how can the GUI of SW be improved" so I gave up. I thought it's time to take another stab at this topic so I'm going to attempt to make this very succinct and concise:
What software programs do you use in your life that you think are wonderfully implemented? These can be programs you use on your TV, cell phone, PDA, computer, games, professional day-to-day etc. For instance: I love what Eric Wenger did with Bryce3D (see attached) one of the truly unique CAD interfaces.
Please remember, I’m with the New Concepts group, not the SW group; for suggestions on how to improve SW - that would be Tom Spine and Jim Wilkinson. With that said, in this thread, I’m not interested in what you think of SW or what it could be, but rather, what other products software products and interfaces get you excited? And so you don’t think I’m just musing with this subject, yes, I’m trying to gather opinion for a future SW product that we are currently working on so your suggestions and opinion DO matter.
