This was bound to happen sooner or later

I’ve always thought that the underlying message of Apple’s Human Interface Guidelines was, “Don’t make ugly software”. By following the guidelines, whatever you create should fit in reasonably well with the other parts of the system. The problem is, applications start to all look the same (this can actually be a feature), so some developers decide to go against the HIG in an effort to stand out. When they screw up, this is the result. At least Adobe won’t be the only one getting this kind of publicity anymore.
