A button that does not have an outline of it's boundaries is retarded! It's much more intuitive to know where to click if it is a square.

How can this obvious regress to 1980's GUI be allowed? Aero looked so gorgeous. I drooled so much at that shit. I can't comprehend how these 5 year-old drawings can be considered "it looks nice" in comparison.

There is a minimal difference of RAM usage between 7 and 8, and it certainly isn't because of the transparency or fancy looks, because DWM draws in almost the same way. In fact, it's possible to keep Win7's look with transparencies and all, and the memory usage is the exact same. Pic related, it's Win8. So that's no excuse, what now bitch?

Never was much of a fan of the glass aero stuff. Though maybe that's just me.

You should try making those borders smaller though. No reason for them to be so huge.

Only problem I have is that I can't find a decent color to use for the border.

I'm sure you'd like it if your light switch were just a one pixel floating x in the air and you'd have to guess it's dimensions.

I know, it's utterly moronic, isn't it?\

Not only have they gotten rid of gradients, highlighting (differences in contrast or color), and visual leads. Now they made the grouping and colors on the top bar worthless as well.

It all exists to offload what processing is done by what parts of the brain, and how easily that information can be stored and manipulated in working memory. Now, not only are you left with some blank monochromatic bar that your eyes have to trace to find the edge of every damn time, the buttons on the side aren't even colored. Yes, you can't even just look for "red", you have keep everything in the most logic and frontal parts of your brain that consciously process symbols and look for an "X" next to a bunch of other symbols. It is moronic and inefficient, it's like they're trying to remove every single bit of usability UX they've ever done.

The icing on the cake? It turns red WHEN YOU HOVER OVER IT. That's right, it turns useful visually the second you don't need it anymore and have already done all the work finding it. What. The. Fuck.

You might want to take care of that window title text though. It's a bit hard to see black on black.
See my example:

>>46723219
"It's minimalistic."

"My mobile display takes less power to use it because our energy storage tech still hasn't improved after the point when we found a way to deliberately gimp carbon nanofiber."

"My display's LUT is only 2 bits now, so much more efficient. 2 bits per "channel"? No, per pixel, silly. What are you, from 2010? Lel."

I almost feel like tech is either go to (meaningfully) move almost nowhere, or go backwards. It certainly already is going backwards from my perspective.

When you were installing you should have unchecked that option (see pic). That will make it use the native windows 8.1 theme. You can also use your own custom atlas file.

You have to donate to remove it but I got the registry key to do it from some site. Let me see if I can find it for you.

Let's be serious here for a moment. What exactly is so rigidly barring Microsoft from doing anything remotely right?

Internal hierarchy issues (typical of middle management)? Some interest we're not aware of? Being just too broken and detached from reality?

I mean certainly nobody with half a brain can sign off on this. I see a case of some higher ups dictating what they want and the actual people implementing it being shoveled into making moronic choices to comply with those guidelines. Nothing about this makes any sense.

Like was mentioned above, the X only turns red after you hover over it. It's as though with every step in that icons slow change to red, there's some beaten down programmer, somewhere in the company, saying "we tried. plz don't hate me".

Aero is the most intuitive and natural way to allow the brain to automatically impose depth and spatial concepts on an OS environment that has come about so far.

What you're suggesting is that it's a positive step forward to eliminate the ability to subconsciously and intuitively know what window is where relative to each other (or the desktop, which is inherent base layer). It isn't, it's simply removing a feature and forcing the user to replace it with inefficient ways of processing stimuli and planning how to interact and complete any given task.

Pic related. Which object is which, and where are they relative to one another and yourself? You barely need to think, you already know. Now close that picture, close your eyes, and try to visualize and answer again, to yourself. You still, already roughly know. The brain stores and processes depth information that efficiently. Opaque "flat" objects are one such construct that is not stored or processed efficiently, is not able to be manipulated mentally, is not descript, and does no let you interpolate what is likely behind it. As macro objects, they tell little beyond what they themselves are, which ain't much.

Honestly, I find it a bit ridiculous we even have to have this conversation. It's like the reality, and the mind you experience is drastically different than my own or any other neurological model ever created around observations about human functioning. Notions of working memory and cognitive load? Nah man, that ain't you. Depth perception? Nope. Spatial reality relative to planning tasks? Nope again, it's like you intrinsically know everything. Well, good luck to you then, have fun with Win 10!

This so much. Have Windows 7 and don't like Aero? Aero eating too much resources? TURN IT THE FUCK OFF AND STOP COMPLAINING. It's not even enabled by default on a fresh Windows 7 install.

Aero was the best thing to happen to Windows since Windows 2000 (seriously, that win+tab) and they remove it in the next iteration in favor of some flat, square bullshit. They could've kept Aero as an option, but noooo, can't have that. You can't even switch to classic Windows theme anymore. I honestly don't know a single person outside of /g/ that didn't like Aero.

This is a point, but my main gripe is...:

Transparency is the best color. There's only one reason not to use it, and that's resources. The blur is there so you still can distinguish things. Sharp edges, minimalistic UI and so on is fine. But why have a flat color? Unless you have a flat color background it looks pretty stupid, oversimplified, doesn't fit in. Guess what? transparent fits in everywhere and anywhere. It fits perfectly whatever wallpaper you choose, and even what part of the wallpaper the window is over.

Minimalism is the best artstyle for any given UI, is able to use the least possible resources and makes your workspace clutter free. This is inherent to minimalism, whose focus is to remove the superfluous and accentuate the details—the important.

You know, for talking about how the brain works, I'm not at all convinced that you actually do know how it works.

What the buttons look like is largely irrelevant to the user experience. You're just trying to take something that you, subjectively, don't like and make it something that you can objectively criticize, and that's fucking retarded.

I'm the anon you quoted.

No, red is not a symbol nor a symbolic reference, which aren't apt to be processed through the same channels as basic color recognition (with an associative context based notion of affordance). This is what is meant by "efficiency", avoiding neurological bottlenecks and providing as much clarity with as little visual clutter as you can. It's so that under any degree of mental load, in any task, in any mood, there are multiple different ways the brain can process in parallel.

>For the record, I don't look for red or an X when I want to close my windows. I look to the top right of the window and then click the rightmost button.
We do roughly the same thing. Now let's talk about how we do it, specifically, in a flat and minimalistic environment like Windows 10. Do you look for the window's rightmost border, then trace it up to the top where the X will be? Does it depend on where your eyes are at the time? Do you look at the windows title and just skim over until you see symbols or what looks like an "edge" to act as a signal? What if you have a lot of shit up everywhere? Do you take the brute force approach and just skim the entire top border? How much and where does your process depend on what you're doing at the time?

Or... do you just flick up to and over at the top bar where you roughly know the edge is and at the same time, over completely different white matter tracts, using completely different brain regions that are already processing visual stimuli before your conscious mind even knows where your eyes have flicked to, click on the red X, or the rightmost of the clear buttons? See there, you have 3+ ways to do the same task, in the same instant, using entirely different brain regions. That is efficiency. In Win 10, that efficiency does not exist.

>What buttons look like is irrelevant to the user experience
>You're criticizing something you subjectively don't like
Make up your mind. Are the relevant, or not?

Of course they are. The issue here is that it can be made objective and quantifiable if you actually think about and model what's happening. Then test those things, think about them some more. Etc. There is a right way to do something for the majority of the population, and wrong way. Some things might be intrinsically wrong for everyone, but who knows.

It's the same reason you don't see purely symbolic UI, relies on working memory and pre-existing knowledge. Nor do you see purely linguistic ones, it's clutter prone, and the brain tends to try to process linguistic stimuli in a serial way, with multiple sources, it tends to rapidly between the two while losing much of both. So, how do you mentally solve this problem? You can load in memory what you know about the UI, a general idea of their spatial relationships, and then parse the beginning of each piece and skip it when you see it isn't what you want. Maybe apply some kind of iteration, depends. With a shitty flat minimalistic UI, this all gets harder. The same general process goes for pure symbols. Trial and error, load mental map of known functions using available spatial ideas, etc etc etc. When in reality you could just skip the bullshit and put a fucking symbolic reference to known affordances, and couple it with a linguistic aid. Group them in sections. Maybe add a color, depends. Humans have a spectrum of capabilities, this is true, but it can and ought to be resolved to an objective and quantifiable basis. Then these ideas can be used to expand intelligently
