View Thread: Open source makes windows 8 usable
  • User profile image

    @AndyC: Close buttons appearing or not based on input method would be little different than all the just-in-time UI that already exists in Windows 8 (scrollbars, zoom buttons, back/forward arrows, hover feedback, etc.). The real issue is just not wanting people to think they're expected to close apps. Making something prominent in the UI sends an implicit message of "this is important, pay attention to this".
