comment Are people sick of logins?
People also hate being forced to use a short password that must contain at least one capital letter, at least one digit, at least one lower-case letter, at least one non-alphanumeric glyph, with no option to use a long sentence as the password phrase.

comment Why does the Stack Overflow swag request form have six address lines?
The best UI would be one in which you get two address lines, and a [+] button to add more lines if you need to, up to a reasonable maximum of 9. :)

We have the same style postal codes in Canada. We often put city/town, province and postal code on a single line: Vancouver, BC, V5V 5V5. Not always with commas.

comment Why is the mouse cursor slightly tilted and not straight?
When you're highlighting text, the cursor changes to an I-beam on any decent UI.

@Den We have not seen user interface operating systems themselves in abundance. Most of the world is based on several operating system hegemonies.

Drawing a sharp anything is difficult with antialiasing. If you want sharp, you game the aliasing. :)

comment Make object look draggable
@FrankL "looks like a webapp" is just a nice way of saying "looks just like the sort of cruft that might be a web app". "Not an option" is new text I added since your comment ... and it is quoted from the question; it is not my words! The answer isn't helpful because it calls for a lot of fundamental changes. However, so what? That's what it takes for a proper user experience. Whether to put a drop shadow or whatever on the selection is irrelevant.

@FrankL I cannot find the word "not" in the answer. Everything is about what to do. There is a hint that it's a desktop app (and not touchscreen): OP writes about "clicking" on objects.
