A minimalist interface

Downloaded and started using the GitHub client for Windows today and noticed that they had designed the application to have a minimalist interface. So beautifully designed!

Creating a minimalist interface isn't easy though. Takes a lot of planning and guts to put on the screen nothing more than what is actually required. I'm a fan already :)

Here's Martin Fowler's views on it and the KISS principle which support it. GitHub client's interface also reminded me of the clever no-click interface created by the institute for interactive research.
