User Experience Guidelines

Both Apple and Microsoft are offering user Experience Guidelines resources for developing applications targeting their respective platforms.

In addition to the non-product specific ones, such as the previously mentioned Yahoo Design Patterns, these are essential when designing User Experiences and can save both Client Application developers and Information Architects a lot of time both defining, but eventually also defending and explaining their ideas and decisions… as well as eventually making more successful user interfaces giving a more fluent and positive Human-Computer-Interaction altogether.
