Comment on "Follow-Up to "Secret Ingredient""
by anna katzner — Sep 05
What I shall never understand about Ms Kare is the esthetic difference between her early work for Apple and the abominations she created for Windows 3.0.

On one hand: the pixel-goddess herself, pure, precise and ground-breaking. On the other hand someone struggling with 16 colours.

I'd surmise malice, but actually I believe she peaked early, tried her best afterwards and couldn't follow up.

I'll still (and always will) admire her for this and those, but definitely not for that (and whatever came after it).

Or maybe it was just Windows, so tainted even from it's inception, that it took down everyone who even toched it.

(My little joke, of course)
