I say "Gooey" BECAUSE it sounds silly.
I regret nothing.

At least 'gooey' is better than 'scuzzy', and much easier to pronounce than WYSIWYG! ;)

Next up, how to pronounce GIF…
wizzy wig!!! and gooey, both sound more human to me, but I am colour blind!!! =)

Did you know www dot is the only abbreviation that takes longer to say than what you're abbreviating?

UX. I'm old skool :puf_bigsmile:
No, UX is new school. GUI was very much used 1990-2005. Then with agile trends being more democratic, people started to mention UX as opposition to GUI to say not only the interface matters but also the whole journey (for example process of registration, overall speed, simplicity of the workflow).

As usual there was nothing new there, before we were saying GUI and ergonomy as 2 different concepts, now we say UX... Nothing new under the sun...

So what is the new trend after UX? API is the new trend, machine to machine discussion... No need for UX lol. We do that without humans.

Again nothing new there, API are 40 or 50 years old concept. But refreshed by Jeff Besos when he sent an email to his IT staff saying that teams not generating API would be fired (this part of the story is true but the whole stuff is a bit more complex and boring to explain :-p).

Good point. Think it is.

EDIT - Mr Google agrees. ;)

Wow kids these days :cool:

GOOEY - as a child of software development in the 90s. Anything else is just plain wrong. SCSI is Skuzzy and WYSIWYG is whizzeewig. Simple!

Gooey :)

First there was CUI (Character user interface aka green screen), then GUI, then BUI (Browser User Interface) :D
Really they're all forms of UI and you could argue they're all graphical! (pixel art anyone?)

UX is different. User Experience is more than the user interface, it is the other elements that also affect the 'experience' of the user. e.g. workflow, performance/responsiveness, reliability, and more broadly the feel of the keyboard, the clack clack found and feel of the mouse etc, and maybe even more broadly your contact Reasonstudios for support (although that then gets into CX - customer experience).

Anyway, gooey :D

GUI is so last century. It's all about UI, UX or CX when talking about the graphical user interface these days :)

I don't really have no one to talk to about graphical user interface these days. And if I make one, I don't care what it is called. These days.

I would suspect the people who call them Gooeys are the same psychopaths who say GIF with a J sound (like Jif peanut butter) and REs like the prefix "re". Complete savages! I'll bet they call CPUs "KuhPoohz!"?

Speaking of psychos, why do Brits insist on saying tomato with an "ah" sound in the first syllable, but say potato with two long O sounds?
(totally joking about the psycho comment, of course. I come from a long line of British psychos who immigrated to America a few hundred years ago)

Goo-ey. But more often just "U.I."
Then…
Shouldn’t UI be pronounced “you-ee”?
(Or should GUI be pronounced “goo-eye” if UI is pronounced “you-eye”???)
:)
Excellent point... and match!

User interfaces peaked in the 80s anyway, so don't worry if you've no one to talk to about them these days! :wave:

Now I have about the same picture, just more resolution and colors. How come user interfaces are still there, but the name is outdated?

So true haha.
I have another one for you : how come 'agile' has been invented in 1995 and is still sold by consulting companies as modern?
Marketing in IT is so funny...
