After not being on this site for some time, I found new applications that sounded good. I downloaded them; a few where amazing, like Notepad++ Portable, and a few where not. The ones that were amazing looked professionally done; what I thought was expected from portableapps. On the other hand, some of the other ones just looked like, keywords...looked like, they were done fast, without much thought, and didn't look easy on the eyes. This is the first time this as happened, and I hope it is the last time it will happen; because of this new idea.
Basically, it is a set of rules that MUST be met before it can be released.
I'll give you an examples:
The database application, Microsoft Access, has a set of rules that you can, if you choose to, follow to eliminate redundancy in tables. Some of you might know it as Database Normalization.
You would have several steps that John and several developers would create, they would increase in strictness after each step, and provide a "guideline" to build professionally looking applications that look good to the eye.
I would like to know what you, John, think about this; of coarse, everyone can still comment
