Angry fruit salad

A bad visual-interface design that uses too many colours.

(This term derives, of course, from the bizarre day-glo colours found in canned fruit salad).

Too often one sees similar effects from interface designers using colour window systems such as X; there is a tendency to create displays that are flashy and attention-getting but uncomfortable for long-term use.
