Deja vu (Windows 2000 Profesional)

I can always remember when Windows 95 was released how many users were confused as to why you had to click the Start button to Shutdown .... :confused:

Testing!?!?!?
What's to test..., it's the same fecking dialog with a couple icons removed!!! 🤷‍♂️

Is there such little progress being made at Microsoft that a simple logo and icon removed from a dialog is considered news worthy?

Not quite. It's behaviour has changed too. Particularly noticeable if you routinely just use the keyboard to operate it. See my post #45 here:

    fully 'Windows 11 ready' laptop. Windows 10 C: partition migrated from my old unsupported 'main machine' then upgraded to 11. A test migration ran Insider builds for 2 months. When 11 was released on 5th October it was re-imaged back to 10 and was offered the upgrade in Windows Update on 20th October.

Yet another annoying change. I often use alt+f4, enter to do a full shutdown.

I rarely used alt+f4 to select another option.

Now I have to press alt+f4, enter, enter.

So in typical Windows 11 fashion, the stupid designers expect us to press more keys.

Haven't they heard of the phrase "If it ain't broke", don't fix it!".

As with much of what they do, that simple concept is beyond MS cognition. With each OS they spend more time developing obtrusive flashy crap like emojis and stickers and less time on what makes for productivity. I've always though MS should consider they have 2 kinds of users and offer 2 separate windows versions, one for teeny-boppers and hipsters who won't use anything unless it has a touchscreen and one for the rest of us who will use mice and keyboards until we die. It wouldn't be hard to do as they already have Home and Pro. Pro should stand for productivity as well as professional. JMO and I'm stickin' to it.
PS-I expect a call from MS any day now asking for my input. I bet you get one too @cereberus :ROFLMAO:

Microsoft is trying to grab teenager eyes! They know these days everything is UI and touch devices (I hate touch devices, I love my Keyboard). Like Adobe, Microsoft is trying to make Windows better (optimize) for touch devices, and is working on new trending UI like emojis, colourful elements (vivid vs pastel colours), curvy elements (it has a big role to grab the brain not the eyes!) and so on.

Very true. I do like seeing rounded corners for the windows. Reminds me of Windows 7 :ROFLMAO:

There is no anti-aliasing in Win 7 curves :nope:! 11's curves are more eye-catching than 7, and its curves are scalable!

Q: Why do Italians avoid corners.

A: Their ancestors never knew what a corner was.
