Finally! Great Talk.
Everything I wanted to say was said before;:
"The tire tracks in the title bars need to go. Changing colons to tire tracks doesn't make it any better."
"...how many more comments do you guys need to get rid of ALL CAPS menu?"
"I stare at thing all day, and with monochrome it hurts my eyes."
"This is the first release of VS in 10 years where I don't want to move to it."
"Adding a smidgen of color is not enough."
We have to work with it, day in day out. Those supposedly minor annoyances are huge if you will be annoyed every freaking day. Why is it so hard for us developers to get this message to Microsoft?
PLEASE NO CAPS
PLEASE NO MONOCHROME(ish) UI
A WELL BALANCED USER EXPERIENCE IS MISSING, IMHO
The rest of the product is amazing as always.
BTW: The only videos not working in "IE10 / Windows 8 Release Preview" are the Channel 9 Videos.
At first the black and white theme is nice to look at. But the missing colors make it really hard to differentiate things without thinking about it. It is much harder to just use or navigate to elements. I have to actively search for every tiny bit. Over and over again. The more "dimensions" (form, size, color...) in play, the faster my work can be done without interrruptions.
Additionally, the black and white is quite boring to look at after a short while. That's important too.
On the other side, the functionality of VS11 is amazing. Keep up the good work.
Just my 5 cents.
Very awesome presentation.
