And the big things

Kinda wish top arch's corners weren't rounded.
Totally digging (1,2) and (2,3).
@Anton Kudin I absolutely agree. I think the whole rounded corners on every element is kinda silly. I just made this to show that choice #3 on the top row makes absolutely no sense. Choices 1 and 2 have a consistency in logic in their direction, but three is contradictory. I also provided three other options (bottom row) that are more consistent with the platform's history, while still maintaining rounded corners to show what *could* have been done.
But I truly think the sharp corners note is the most beautiful version. In fact, I kinda have an unhealthy obsession with it. Examples: 1, 2, 3.
@Prathyush Thanks! When you say (1,2), (2,3) do you mean top row second glyph and bottom row third glyph?
Done some reading on this symbol.
Just based on description of this symbol: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Beam_(music), beam here is just a thick line connecting two notes. If you draw a single note with such line width, you'll most likely get a hard end on top, not rounded one.
Then even if you add a rounded-cornered thick line, you still have your note's line which will fill that corner in.
UPD. Or throw away theory if you want a funky style, of course. It's a all about a stylistic choice.
@Anton Kudin I don't disagree with you in the least. I was simply saying that even if they made such a stylistic choice, they should be consistent about the angle at which they orient its internal elements. The checkmark in no way is my own approval of the choice.
@Eli Schiff Yeah i was just thinking out loud :)
@Eli Schiff Yes, matrix notation.
@Prathyush That's a serious rabbit hole...I should probably learn it though for programming's sake.
@Eli Schiff Yeah, this stuff is the building block of 3D graphics but as Bret Victor puts it, all the real beauty of what's happening under the hood is cluttered by weird looking symbols and we have to blindly manipulate them to achieve the desired.
