>a symptom of autism is resistance to change

Nigga, pls. Even using a tiling wm like i3 is more aesthetically pleasing than windows 10.
>>
>>52947835
Agreed. I grew up using Windows and never used UNIX or a tiling WM until around 2009. Of course, I can't live without i3 these days.

I still think the classic Windows look is pretty comfy though.

It was what it was, nothing more or less. Functional, minimal, machinelike, and most importantly consistent with the operating system instead of fighting it in some desperate attempt to look hip and different.

But ultimately I would take either, I'm very optimistic about flat design, and I believe it has a lot of potential. Definitely better than the obnoxious "look at me! you've got a 24-bit display now, might as well use it!" garbage of 2001-2011.

Bill Gates wrote a book in the mid-90's about what he thought the Internet would become. The book came with a multimedia CD that illustrated a lot of his predictions. That's the video. Everything about it, from the optimism to the presentation, is reminiscent of old tech from decades past
