    Is the fact that Windows 8 is horrendously ugly a design difference?

  • PeacemanPeaceman

    You lure me in here with an ad on techmeme and expect me to watch a "1 hour, 12 minute" video!? Dafuq? Didn't know Windows 8 is that complicated.

  • Excellent contrast between Windows 8 clean design and Apple's cumbersome Skeuomorphic theme.

  • @Dimitar Dobrev: I optimistically assume you're educated enough to elaborate on your simplistic pitiful slur.

  • @Peaceman: Learning takes time. Oh the era of ADHD and where people are proud of it! -.-

    No excellent contrast between the toy Windows 8 OS and a functional OS like iOS. Windows 8 has been described as having a very bad usability and if you are willing to get out of your Windows world full of anti-Apple stupidity, you could read this


    Windows 8 is a disaster, a pain for users. Microsoft would do good to itself if it would admit its mistake instead of pushing people to use such a bad product.

    @Elizer0x0309​: Do you really think I'd waste time elaborating on the obvious repulsiveness of Windows 8? Anyway, my apologies that my post wasn't simplistic enough for you.

    I used some windows 8 pc's the other day and I found the design to be very good. This video not only explains windows 8 design, but also some good universal design rules that will be the future of design.

    @Donald McIntyre: Yay. Some sanity on the thread... Thanks.

  • while iOS is great on smartphones, i never quite appreciated it as a tablet OS... i think Microsoft has done a great job with their Windows 8 UI, and its disappointing that people have been blinded to it...

    I just got a PC with windows 8 today and I think it is very usable, you just have to have two things; intelligence and common sense. As long as you maintain those two things it is extremely user friendly.

    I haven't use Windows 8 yet. But as a web designer watching this video made me rethink again about design principles and I personally think this is the way to go for today computer UI designs.

    It's simple, beautiful and econormical. Simple is more.

    Moving away from the search field seems silly to me.
