BrandonGUI Awards of the Past: 2008
Countdown to GUI Awards 2013: 3 Sundays left until sign-ups close. By 2008, everything had changed, Trolly was now around, and new members of the community like Jason and Aguma had been working on new demos. Winner: Q-Step XT 2.1 When Trolly showed up with Q-Step, the community was instantly changed. We now had a talented programmer who took the time to write a well polished GUI, which meant that we all had to step it up if we wanted a chance at winning the Awards. Q-Step featured a lot of applications and had nice visuals using a routine that'd draw every other pixel for a partially transparent effect.Download Runner Up: Fun500 4.0 In 2008 I opened up Fun500 3 on some real hardware and found that it was extremely slow and unstable. A lot of the stability issues were fixed with a new version of FreeBASIC, but I also optimized my code a fair amount and release Fun500 4, which was good enough for second place.

I really like the visual style of Q-Step; it's still one of my favorite GUIs in terms of appearance.

I did like the style, but the dithering runs really slow in my experience.
