While RS makes it extremely easy to create a user interface just by dragging and dropping, a good program needs a bit of forethought and design. It can also be useful sometimes to run through proposed interface screens with a client, in which case a prototyping tool may (for various reasons) be a better option than showing a screen created in RS.

There is an online course on Coursera just starting now on the subject of Human-Computer Interface, which looks like it might be useful, both on the topic of design theory and using prototyping. https://www.coursera.org/course/hci

After watching lecture 1.1 I feel important, I might be even able to prevent a nuclear disaster if I learn from this guy!

Actually I stopped watching right at the point the lecturer mentioned preventing nuclear disasters with good UI design. Perhaps it's just me but come on...

Thanks for sharing though!

Think it was "Spitting Image" that had a scene where the President of the USA had two identical buttons side by side, one to summon staff and one to launch the nukes...
