"But also transparency and ESPECIALLY flat are just a GUI disaster on ANY platform."

Windows Vista/7 UI theme is wonderful, it still looks fresh and yes transparency works fine there. But these ugly as butt flat UI from Windows 8/8.1/10 with colors selected by colourblind "designers" in Redmond is hell. In alternative reality, a new MS CTO reverts back to Win7 UI and user mode code and keep the kernel mode part of Win10 (except the hardcoding slurping in network driver) - but staying with Win10 user mode codebase is a showstopper (UWP needs to die, WinAPI for the win) and it's getting worse by the minute.
