Re: Not What It Was Intended For

Really it is Microsoft's fault for the ridiculous assertion that what works on a tiny touch screen for a smart phone should be extended in both form and principle to the design of a workspace that is intended for expansive, professional use rather than limited, social consumer use.

Good UX design does not include the assumption that the user just knows where to touch the screen without adequate visual cues. This conflates and confuses the importance of an appropriate, clear and consistent UI in a constrained usage environment, with the fundamentally poor principles that result from a denuded interface lacking necessary visual or behavioural constructs.
