    We moved past the design decision made in windows 7. Microsoft just wanted to sell a new OS without adding any value in 8 so they leaned heavy on the tablet design to incentives buying it. Then they realized that all their tablet efforts sucked and back tracked for windows 10. Windows 10 wasn't as bad as 8, but still had a lot of issues as Microsoft wanted to make money without having to sell new products or do anything so they turned into ad spyware. Also I'll never forgive them for making the search bar connected to the internet. 11 is when Microsoft lost its identity and just decided to copy apple and google because they don't have any vision when it comes to the OS. This ironically kills windows faster because at least before 11 windows actually had an identity and wasn't trying to be Unix.

      fastest OS ever
      sleek and cool design
      windows 10 was bogged down bloat from the very beginning. only ltsc or windows server 2019/2022 is usable with animations OFF

      thats 2k isnt it?

      looks like 7 with replaced icons
      Start menu has 7's logo, window menus are different, the navigation tree is different, control panel in 2k only had a typical folder view (not categorized), systray is different, and some other things that are not default for 2k but might have been supported (eg. anti-aliased fonts or larger desktop icons)

      it is windows 7 with aeroslop OFF Black person

      This.
      The buttons were tastefully emboss along the edges to create a 3D effect. XP abused gradients to get its depth, looking gaudy.
      Vista/7/8 tried to go for the glossy black surface of a PS3, looks like shit.
      10 & 11 is the worst. They mix flat "minimalism" with 3D elements, looks moronic.

      I'm guessing the next trendy UI look will go back to simple squared embossed edges. It will be our time again.

          no but why would I want clicking on stuff to be harder? I don't have enough shit to fill the whole screen anyway, might as well have larger tiles with labels, which also helps when some things have the same icon
          and it's faster to hit the Windows key and have tiles closer to the middle of the screen instead of always having to drag your cursor to the corner

    The Desktop Windows team got de-prioritized after Microsoft bet on mobile but they lost that bet and the Windows team has never fully recovered.
    Additionally all the OG Windows devs left but Windows is still built on the same re-animated corpse of Windows NT so now no one on the team has any understanding of the OS anymore. Which leads do insane moronic shit like using JS to render everything on top of an existing native UI and having 40 different menu styles.

      I am pretty sure this is complete nonsense, some of the changes they have made would have been impossible without a decent level of understanding. The real reasons is nothing to do with ability, windows has been made the way it is, because that is how management want it.

        Exactly. Microsoft is not a charity with the goal of making the best operating system for so-called "Power Users" or to be the best platform for PC Gaming. Microsoft exists to increase shareholder value, and at least right now it isn't clear how making a platform good for either of those things contributes to Microsoft's bottom line.

        Valve has a clearer path to make money off of building a better operating system than Microsoft does.

      at least it's the opposite. macOS has good UI and bad UX while Windows has good UX and bad UI.

          >"Just Perfection" to tweak some of the visual related things such as the unnecessarily large top panel;
          >"Rectangle" which is a clone of the Rectangle OSX app that provides keyboard-shortcuts for window snapping in several different layouts;
          >"Night Theme Switcher", which switches GTK, cursor and icon themes (as well as run scripts or commands) based on time of day; and
          >"Auto Move Windows" which allows you to configure windows to always open on certain assigned workspaces.

          There are others, but these provide functionality which I think should be standard in every single desktop.
