A few of my developer buddies at work are arguing about the best way to
design a GUI (They are creating forms for an Oracle database). I have seen
the User Interface Engineering web site which discusses design, but it is
web-centric. Does anybody know of a resource similar to the UIE web site
that discusses design cocepts for non-web GUI apps. I want to find hard
stats if possible (e.g. productivity is increased by 120% by using "this"
design technique to develop your interface, etc).
