Caught! It seems a singularly strange minimalist look for the visual representation of an operating system, when the industry and people are mainly looking to the future and forward development, not back to the caves. Contemporary hardware is so powerful that the number of pixels in the operating system interface is not the factor causing poor performance.Less pixels need to be used on the interfaces, not more
I shudder to think of the disparity of how many billions Microsoft has spent on the UI and how little they've spent on stability, functionality and ease of use.
I whole heartedly agree.It is a wrongheaded mistake to think they need to waste more screen space on their terrible spammy knockoff UI. Less pixels need to be used on the interfaces, not more. Did they learn nothing from Windows 8?
I don't need or want an Android notification drawer on a desktop computer. It doesn't make any sense, and would actively get in the way. Did you ever see a popup ad in the 90s and think "I want an easier way to get these ads baked directly into my operating system"?
The people designing Windows 11 simply don't use Windows on a daily basis. Someone in midlevel management is trying to tank the product. There's no other explanation for this continued chain of backwards decisions.
Most companies fire people that openly hate their products, so it's weird that Microsoft apparently makes those people design leads and managers on Windows, instead.
I hate the clipped corners on the task bar, but hopefully it can at least be moved to vertical. There's zero chance I keep windows 11 installed on a computer until they restore such an extremely basic functional customization.
It's a bit* worse than that, I'd say. The money MS is now making is not on the OS, but the telemetry and information they can gather out of you; plus Enterprise licensing. Windows is now trying to close the gap between it and Android on the consumer front, trying to go all Google and smash those ads on you.I whole heartedly agree.
Ever since Satya Nadella came into power as new MS CEO, MS has been heading in the wrong direction in terms of technical capability, technical implementation, UI design, & priorities.
Pre Satya Nadella, I never had to worry about a MS patch causing issues.
Now I wait 7 weeks after each patch for end users to complain about issues.
You can thank Satya Nadella for firing the entire testing division and turning everybody in Dev's (Who are expected to test their product, but in reality, they don't and are lazy to write crap and get it out of the door to look productive).
Satya Nadella needs to be FIRED for the great longevity and health of MS & PC industry.
Do not forget he destroyed Nokia and MS lost something like 10 - 15 billion$ not counting how much could earn by having Nokia alive.It's a bit* worse than that, I'd say. The money MS is now making is not on the OS, but the telemetry and information they can gather out of you; plus Enterprise licensing. Windows is now trying to close the gap between it and Android on the consumer front, trying to go all Google and smash those ads on you.
Still, firing your testers is never a good idea, regardless of what/where you're doing/heading with the development XD
