It seems to me that standardised interfaces are regarded as a good thing in interface design, since it allows users to reuse their knowledge in different interfaces. This seems very true in desktop applications. I appreciate for instance knowing that the about/help menu might be on the right in the menu bar.
On the other hand, sometimes small incremental improvements just won't do. And things need to be built from scratch again. This could happen when trying to adapt to a new media for instance.
Please tell me if I'm wrong, but this seems a bit off in the web area, Apparently more creativity is generally allowed in this area, if not encouraged, right ?
Hence is my question : I am currently wondering about the feelings of the UI/UX community towards the twitter bootstrap framework. I am not a UI/UX guy,and I personally greatly appreciated it's ease of use. But I am now wondering : isn't it "boring" to see the same design in so many sites ?
And so should we generally use this framework on websites in order to weight knowingly towards some kind of standardisation ? Or on the contrary avoid it, and favor more unique and creative approaches ? Or even something in between, like adapting the color palette ?
Thank you for reading this (long) question.
