I hated them the moment I saw 'em...

I thought the leather desk accessory idea was not only patronizing and ugly (the color used for the leather-look was way too yellow, the least they could've done was let us choose the color/texture of the leather), but they put cute before function (especially in Lion's address book). I use BusyCal instead now, I wish they made an address book too.

I want skeuomorphism!

I just learned why I love Apple's design so much! The reference to everyday objects make it friendlier and less alien.

So OK, don't use a picture of a reel-to-reel but a picture of an iPod?

So they gonna change that huh? Steve is rolling around about now.

Never been a fan of the constant mimicking of real life products in Apple's operating systems. Made no sense. It was silly then and as I get older, it is still silly now. iOS needs to grow up and represent the 6 year old that it will be in 2013.

I have been playing around with Windows 8 Pro and once you get used to the different Start interface from any previous Windows release, it is not too bad. It has been very stable thus far. More so than Windows 7 was, which is what I upgraded from.
