The particular product categories that I'm interested in are
commercial/industrial products and medical informatics.

locating tabs at the bottom of an application window

Hi all,

I'm in the process of designing an intranet portal that allows access to 8 content sections.

Each section has its own layout, once the users logged into the portal they should be able to shift between sections without having to leave or close whatever they were doing in another section.

In order to allow this functionality I decided to use tabs for each new task and locate them at the bottom of the window (much like minimized applications in the windows taskbar).

Is there a reason not to do so?

PC to Mac port


We are planning to port our PC-based application to the Mac. The target audience includes SOHO (Small Office/Home Office) users as well as corporate Mac users.

If you’re a Mac user, I’d appreciate hearing rants and raves about software you’ve used that was originally written for the PC. What worked well? What drove you crazy?

Accessibility Guidelines for Windows Software GUI

Hello everybody
I am currently working out a GUI concept for a windows software that should (among a 1000 other things) also be accessible in the sense that one should control the interface entirely by keyboard.
Though I know a variety of tools and standards to check and implement good accessibility on the web, I never came across any guidelines or recommendations on how to make a software accessible.
Can anyone name me some (non-technical) sources?
