I work for an amazing software development company. Though we keep what each of us is working on diversified, we each have a few areas of expertise. My interests always seem to shine right on user interaction design and user experience. I am fascinated by the way we interact with applications and always looking to improve that interaction.

I don't claim to be any sort of expert but am always happy to share my opinions and what I have learned though experience. I am always eager to learn and open to listen.

You may want to read this article uie.com/articles/three_hund_million_button I don't know how the concepts will apply to your particular situation but its points are definitely worth considering.

comment Why show the global menus only on mouseover in Ubuntu Unity?
I think that menu would be the least of your problems if you were using the gimp on a tablet. I would be very handicapped without having keyboard shortcuts in that application.

comment Summary Rows and Paged Data Tables
Exactly the questions to ask, what is most useful to the user? Another point to add to this would be that whichever way is more useful needs to be made clear and obvious as to what is actually being shown (this page vs. all pages)

comment In Excel, how do you make it clear that a pane is frozen?
I'm not sure about the excel implementation but you could probably freeze a second row below the first that is thin and gray and get a similar effect. If you could make it blue and stripey it would probably get the point across even more.

comment Tags! Massive amounts of tags and a sane interface to use them
@Chris So why are these tags being presented to the end user at all? When I use pandora and create a new station it tells me it is now creating a station with music similar to the qualities of some band such as x, y and z. They don't show me 700 or ten thousand tags because what do I care.

comment Should menu items be listed alphabetically or in order of most common use?
And then you have the lovely scenario (with adaptive menus) where one coworker asks another how to do something in the system and the instructions may prove to be more confusing than helpful. "Click the first link in this menu." Totally agree that adaptive menus should be avoided in this instance.

comment The use of tabs
I picked up on one particular thought in your post, and perhaps this wasn't how you meant it, but I would be curios to hear your thoughts. You said "you wouldn't present pages of search results in tabs." What about Google? If I search for apples I can then click images and see images of apples, or videos, etc. Probably not quite what you meant but would you consider that appropriate tab usage?
