But there is indeed a very clear difference in how things are
marketed to professionals, prosumers and amateurs, even if the
first two seem to converge somewhat. If I see a plugin GUI with
rack handles, screws, shiny surfaces, an agressive color scheme
designed to stand out, big trademarks or any text yelling at me,
an illogical layout or any non-functional graphics, I know that
I shouldn't waste my time with it.
A world of exhaustive, reliable metadata would be an utopia.
It's also a pipe-dream, founded on self-delusion, nerd hubris
and hysterically inflated market opportunities. (Cory Doctorow)
