Greg Storey lays it on the WordPress default GUI in Yugo (where he comes up with these names I have no idea) and I can’t really blame him. We use WordPress extensively here and if Colin hadn’t switched to another them for the admin section I probably would have gone insane. He also touches on an interesting point about the “battle” between backend developer and frontend designers.
Yes I know WordPress is free and I am friends with Matt Mullenweg so I am not promoting the downfall of WordPress. I am promoting the need for it to be prettier because that’s what it deserves.
