For most of my adult life the answer to any UX question was "How does Apple do it, and have they got a patent that stops us from doing it that way?". OS X was a huge improvement in every respect a geek cares about -- Mach! BSD! Darwin! NextStep! Objective-C! Cocoa! Display PostScript! Quartz! -- and a huge step back in the relentless, uncompromising UX perfectionism that had been Apple's hallmark (Aqua... pfftt). iOS has torpedoed that whole elegant ship; there's nothing but flotsam left.
