Is Moodle ugly?

One of blogs I have in my reader published today article about Moodle : Training the Web Worker Way: Moodle

Some interesting links there, but first comment under that article has brought up a question I heard more often recently. "Moodle is bad designed", "Moodle UI is too complicated" or "Moodle is just plain ugly".

I am working with Moodle for years, I am not encountering that problem often. (And when I don't know, how something is working, I just look into code...I know, I am weird ;-) )

What do you think? Is this correct? Are you getting lost all the time when you use Moodle? Any specific ideas for better UI? Any thoughts welcomed.

Moodle 1.9 finally stable

After long period of testing, including recently ended Bugathon, Moodle 1.9 is available and in stable version.

You can find more information here http://moodle.org/mod/forum/discuss.php?d=91667

I hope I will return after my current blog hibernation to show you some new goodies 1.9 is made of.

I am planning to stroll through all modules, look for changes and highlight most useful stuff.

I think that waiting will be worth of, that the new 1.9 version will be very successful, robust and bugfree. All developers worked very hard to achieve that.

Stay tuned :)
