is there an official difference between a grid and a table pattern?

All,

This morning my team reviewed this very nice article about free project management apps - http://www.smashingapps.com/2010/09/22/awesome-yet-free-web-apps-to-make-project-managers-lives-easier.html .

When we got down to "Project Bubble", an interaction designer stated that this was a very good use of a grid. When I asked how that differed from the ones above he said becuase it had headers.

"New article" vs "Create article" vs "Add article"

Hi guys,

Could you please tell what do you think is better to use as link text in
CMS:
- New article
- Create article
- Add Article
?

On one hand, it's good to use verbs/actions - "Create", "Add".
On another - people are used to "New" command in desktop apps (at least on
Windows).

Thank you.

Open format between Visio and Omnigraffle?

After observing the list for a while, it's clear that our community is split
between Visio users on PCs and Omnigraffle users on Macs. Is there a format
common to both Visio and Omnigraffle with which we can publish stencils,
templates, etc. so we don't have to duplicate our efforts? Alternatively,
are there simple converters between the two formats?

Prototyping Tools 2012 - Axure RP 6.0 or iRise Studio

Hi all,

My first post on IXDA.

I realise that this point is raised periodically but wanted to get a quick verdict on the most popular prototyping and wireframe creation tools. 

Criteria is that we are designing enterprise, transactional applications and platforms - with complex interactions and logic and our designers are using mixture of Mac and Pc as their workstations - so ideally I want something multi platform compatible. 

Tools under the microscope are;-

Mega Drop-Down Navigation menus

Hi all,

I’m putting together some recommendations for using mega drop-down
navigation.

http://www.useit.com/alertbox/mega-dropdown-menus.html

I’m interested in the opinion of the iXDA list on whether the
top-level navigation items should lead to pathway (or landing) pages,
or whether they can simply act as non-hyperlink triggers to the
drop-down (so no hand cursor)?

Also, if there is no pathway page, how should this impact breadcrumb
trails?

For instance:

Home > Sports > Windsurfing

- Should ‘Sport
