funny how 27 years later we're going back to where it all started. over-styling aside, touchscreen and gestures are playing a big role in these new invisible (or visible when needed) interface trends.
also lets designers more time to think of the underlying interactions.

excuse me, but where is mac? xD
Pretty crazy how things end up. Only if we can predict this kinda stuff back in 1988.
@Takahashi Alex ha! its about at the same point actually http://cl.ly/image/3q1n1M070S1d/o
This is awesome to see visualized. Thanks!
everything is coming back again and again and again :)
I like it how the mac ones are just getting smaller :P
Isn't the 3.0 scrollbar off a bit? Windows 3.x had fixed size thumbs. Windows 95 introduced the idea of a scrollbar thumb inversely proportional to the content size.
@Kiran Jonnalagadda true, made the whole consistent so that dimensions doesn't disturb from the main point.
cool, i would go with the 1988s anyway ^^
@Adrien Olczak except Apple worked it out in 2007 instead of 2012 ;)
I guess it a natural evolution, we'll probably go back to over detailled ui design in a few years, when we'll all be feed up with simplicity.
Screens got better and better over the years, and therefore more and more detail were added. The simplicity in the 80's were forced, but now, even with this good screens, we still want simple. Less is more.
I wonder what the reactions would be if you showed designers in 1988 the current-day design along with "this is where we're heading"...
It´s about users knowledge concerning what a scroll bar is, it seems like in 2012 we all recognize it even in it´s most essential form. Affordance gets unnecessary for common objects.
