As far as I can tell, Nikon Scan was designed and written by high-school
students.  Nobody else would be inexperienced and nave enough to put a
higher priority on cool, unconventional 3-D effects for buttons and dialog
boxes than on ease of use and reliability.

This illustrates what seems to be a rule with computers:  The better the
hardware, the worse the software.  It's as if no company can afford to be
good at both ... which may well be true.  HP makes nice hardware, and so
does Nikon--but their software is a nightmare.  Conversely, Microsoft makes
good software, but their hardware (such as it is) leaves much to be desired.
