Whither useful information for an overdesigned site?

R.I.P. Bay Area Transit Information Page,
1994-2003. The site, started by two Berkeley
students, provided quick access to transit information in the San Francisco Bay Area, who later received funding for their efforts in 1996. Instead, it gets replaced by this abomination
of web design. On the other hand, it is very unusual
for a web site to keep the same user interface
over the span of almost a decade. Already, there have been user interface rants
, complaints about not finding information
, sarcastic commentary
, and a brief eulogy
delivered from one of the original creators, and it hasn't even been the first day. Is content over style dead or are information sites like this (flash)
the wave of the future?
