@mdonatas:I agree and i do not understand this. I always enjoyed to watch Erik's interviews on C9, but especially his Haskell series. I am myself european and to say so i personally f.... on f-bombs, but after having worked more than a decade for ms i do not quite understand this aggressive approach towards ms in this talk.
Most parts of the UI are still that much monochromatic that it's really hard to distinguish icons. items and windows borders.
Especially the Windows Forms Toolbox and the SCC-Explorer lack a that lot of color that - at least i - have to begin to read each items caption to get some orientation.
From my perspective color just needs to be a configurable option (propose a 'colorful' theme), same with all caps. Who is happy with grey or dark theme and all caps sticks with that optiion, all other go with colors. if they feel more comfortable.
