Re: Why not?
Classic Shell is a fix for a real problem, a work around for another MS misstep. I was thinking of a complete separate GUI to replace the MS version. That way people can chose a 3rd market GUI that will have the look and feel, better suited for what they want and do.
Why do people spend hours trying to make the GUI usable from the MS default with every new OP? The XP version of the desktop, seems to have become a standard people want, whether it is a Linux mint desktop, or Win 7, or Win 8/8.1 or the new Windows 10. What's with MS trying to make a desktop look and feel like a phone or a fondle slab? With a touch screen yet? Desktops have mice and are used for serous work in one place, even for home users. If people want to be mobile, the still can, but why should that desktop that is 18X17X6.5 inchs, with a 24 to 30 something screen (or two) and a mouse, have the same look and feel as their mobile device? Why make the Desktop conform to a mobile standard?
Most people are smart enough to use their different computer devices effectively, even though the look and feel of each is different.
