helloSystem: Pre-alpha FreeBSD project chases simplicity and elegance by taking cues from macOS


Re: Well...

For those of us who prefer not to use a mouse, a hamburger menu is ... inconvenient. I get on fine with the old school pulldowns as they are keyboard enabled.

There is no one-size-fits-all best UI. The biggest UI problem I see is UI designers who interact with the system in only one way (theirs), and tough cookies for anyone who has a different method. There is an open source application I contributed to where the two maintainers used the system differently from the original author, each would constantly introduce UI bugs that only cropped up under an "other" UI paradigm, and 100% of bug reports were initially marked as "could not reproduce". Needless to say I am fed up with that application.
