Re: re: The Microsoft View of the world
I too prefer the Win7 UI but Win10 can be persuaded to look and feel pretty much like Win7.
As a pure developer, my preference is for a solid colour desktop with no icons except the handful I put there to perform different functions with the same basic program. The couple of hundred programs installed on my Win7 box are easiest reached from the Start button.
In Win10 all my tiles have been removed, starting with the animated Live Tiles.
Flat is good because I've always disliked the 'pretty' icons of WinXP compared to Win2K as I prefer plain and frugal. Same with transparency. Bah humbug!
