This submission [Enforce UX Guidelines.] has been removed because
Third-party software issue
Microsoft may not control software makers, but Microsft should be working with them to ensure they make more effort to conform to Windows UX guidelines.
A major gripe is that Applications like iTunes, Quicktime and CS4 don't have window shadows and thus don't fit into the 'Aero' interface. In fact CS4 has NO indication of whether it is or isn't in focus.
This affects the way people interact with their computers. They need to be able to tell which Window is in focus. It also makes Vista / Windows 7 look much less attractive and polished when guidelines aren't followed.
Enforce the UX Guidelines as much as possible. Work with the offending companies and help them fix their mistakes.
