I Have An Idea To Change The Way We Look At Metro UI

Coming from idea that those PM as also PCs they came up with idea of Windows 8 which ends up not being good for anything. Brighter background, minimalist scrollbar, no more reminders of Windows 3.1 4. MS can improve Metro, but touch will still be inferior. They should optimise windows 8 for a hardcore desktop(non-touch) experience otherwise they'll lose for sure. his comment is here

Judging by the fact that the sets of slides and the texts of presentations of a variety of specialists are very similar, the information has been carefully prepared and verified by The updated design language borrows heavily from ideas that are already widespread online. At a minimum, the user should be given the option to select a UI style that best suits their needs. Doing this creates the feel of a full screen customizable Start Menu, rather than a whole new (crappy) interface we have to learn.

Along with more customization and quicker operating system. don't confuse tactical, pragmatic solutions with ideological ones. There are issues with the OS, such as those the OP has highlighted, but there are also loads of improvements that in my opinion make Windows 8 a very good upgrade.

Interesting how you didn't list any of those ‘improvements' that justify such hackery. I have repeatedly defended Windows 8 as a bold risk, an attempt to define a new market, and an essential step for Microsoft to take. In this brief description of the ideology of the Metro interface, we’ve used the advice of Microsoft, having dropped all secondary elements, and having focused on the essentials. Quicken, Adobe, et al) to port to Metro.

What do we need Metro for? Redesigning Metro Microsoft should have blended the two into an unique interface that would have combined the benefit of ease of use that the desktop has with the unique visual impact Does anyone know to fix this? Is there anyway to do this?

There really wasn't that much wrong with the style of VS2010, a redesign is not necessary in my opinion. if microsoft is for some reason reading this here is my two cents. thenonhacker commented · March 05, 2012 17:01 · Flag as inappropriateFlag as inappropriate · Delete… @VSlover: If you maximize VS, the status bar will optically recede at the bottom edge of Another complaint is the calendar; you can subscribe to a calendar, such as Google Calendar, but it only subscribes to your main calander.

Draw a line using touch and you'll see a very noticeable lag and latency. Take note of the Min/Max/Close, and the Size Grip, as well as the simple border. 3. But it is also a very polarizing one among longtime Windows users and that’s something Microsoft will ignore at its own peril. of course, windows 8 has all of this plus metro, which makes windows 7 GUI seem great by comparison.

And who cares if you miss me or not? Live tiles provide a clear benefit through their live updates, and they look great while they're at it. But I do like things with live tiles and the ability to sync my settings. The ability to share links, images, and documents is essential to my work flow.

I think that is one area that they did well at, allowing the user to work around the new interface. Given that this is the DP and the Store is not yet open, does anyone know how to enable access/find more Metro apps or whether any WP7 Xaps (from homebrew) have Today, Metro provides a fairly limited environment that is suitable almost exclusively for simple apps. weblink That is poor design in my opinion.

It's a question of efficient workflow. I agree the things you pointed out are frustrating, but I guess I have naturally stuck to the desktop interface because I know it much better and have not spent extensive These companies do not have the resources to port over into an environment that simply wont work and make them very ineffective.

This should make it easier for the user to navigate and percept the information.

Therefore, not so many visual tools for work are left to the designers. The light seems so faint and fading…. It's 'just a tablet'. Granted, the desktop/laptop market will get smaller due to tablets, but not overnight.

Another important priority: the interface needs to be dynamic and focused on movement. The problem is a user interface that seems as though it was designed for a tablet, not a desktop system. For example, the active elements and buttons should respond when pressed: they should oscillate or be pressed down. Yet, the Metro U.I are different and taylored for each of this form factor.

Of course, there’s a lot more than just my friends’ personal anecdotes to show that Windows 8 is either a love-it-or-hate-it proposition for many longtime users. Answer--for the desktop, they don't.
