Here's what "flat" equates to in my mind ;) :-


And their new UI

Did you 'really' just say that .. may I ask what form of head trauma you're suffering, penetrating or blunt force ?

Personally I think "Windows" started going wrong at "W" (possibly even "D") ;)

I agree Windows has the best third party software support .. but that's a LONG way from saying it's the "best OPERATING SYSTEM ever made" .. it's a TERRIBLE OS, with good third party support ;)

[EDIT]

If third party software support is what makes a good OS, why doesn't Windows 8 fit that criteria ?

I choose to use a MUCH better OS in the hope that in doing so the third party software will follow .. I've had enough of having a great selection of software, but having to run it on rubbish that takes all my time/money to keep running smoothly.

I never ran win 8 doubt i ever will either cause everyone complains about it...  I am happy with my win7 come 2020 I'll have to probably seek out alternatives unless the next windows made is more like 7 then 8...

I remain optimistic that by 2020 Windows will be an historic reference, and you'll definitely be looking for an alternative ;)

Here in the UK we have laws that state goods need to be "fit for the purpose they were sold for" .. quite how Windows ever made it into the shops is  beyond me   :-\

That said, they also allow Fosters Lager .. so the statute obviously needs attention  :o

as  someone who went to school for graphic arts flat design is a modern UI standard these days.
I'm not talking about that metro start screen crap. But simple flat UI, i like it because the way i see
a computer isn't alive skeuomorphism to me is distracting to the eyes and its trying to give life to
something that isn't alive. I like keeping an interface an interface, clean simple, dark and not distracting
on the eyes, since linux and not using apple i realized how much pointless eye candy is a waste of time
and a simple basic interface is more or less what i want.

they are windows 10 its basically a copy of windows 7 with a flat interface looks nice to me.
I don't really mind windows 7 for basic BS just thought that aero interface was ugly. not to mention
i find windows a little confusing to use but i'm a former mac user.





still has in my opinion (to many bells and whistles' )
and anything touch screen is total crap on a computer
its not a smart phone it's a pc!
