I don't think anybody wants the UI but as I've posted before; is it really worth waiting another month for them to change it and test it again? They feel the game is ready for release and I agree. The skill UI (While horrible) is perfectly functional and I'd rather play with it and have the game sooner. It can be addressed in a patch along with chat channels which according to Bashiok seems to be the plan.
I really wouldn't call it a sad sad day as it shouldn't ruin anyone's experience. The only problem I see is the limitation of where you can bind certain keys which I feel is really stupid. Yet most of the spells that I've seen you wouldn't want to bind to your mouse but I guess players have the right to do so.
I don't agree whatsoever. It completely kills my experience and I would -never- consider this UI release worthy if I was in charge. In fact, there's lots of some of the most simple things they just refuse to tackle that are not release worthy. Sometimes I wonder where standards went.
