>omg le epin flat design so good so modern so beautiful gradients are SO dated!

No, it's bland and lifeless. Flat design is lazy and uninspired. The whole industry is latching on to it because it's an easy fad to follow, but it looks far worse than the nice gradients and opacity we had before.

Just because it's different, that doesn't make it better. A good design is timeless, a fad (like what we're seeing now) gets dated.

Honestly, it's gotten popular because we've had shiny and bulgy for ages now, it's just a welcome trend for those who were sick of the old, and hey it actually evokes some of the modern, minimalist appeal.

Just as bad. The problem here is there is too much contrast between the design of the icons. There are photorealistic icons near totally abstract and single-colour ones. The flat design is unimaginative, but it does look cleaner.

One bad design isn't indicative of a whole paradigm. IMO Google's Material design is flat done right; the elements are flat but still have distinction and layers. The introduction of a "z-index" was probably one of the better design choices from Google.

I think that flat design and Material and all of that other recent shit look good for advertisements. It's a nice style for a commercial or billboard. Simple cartoon to convey an idea. However it's not something I want to see for more than five seconds.

That music folder icon in particular is a good example of this. If I saw it in an ad, I'd get the idea. Local music file storage. Cool. Would I want that thing on my fucking desktop or taskbar? God no. It's hideous as an illustration. It's only good as a symbol.

That's what bothers me. I'm not mothered so much by the design itself as much as how much someone got paid to do that and how lazy it is.
One could say that since they didnt put as much effort into the icons, more went into the OS itself. But MS has the money and resources to hire large teams for each facet of the operating system and someone clearly slapped those icons together in a day so they could get paid and gtfo.

It makes me wonder what else in the OS got treated that way.

That's not how it works at all. If they're part of the team, they probably got coffee about 30 times a day, took hour lunches, about 60 or so smoke breaks, and drew maybe one part of the design. At meetings he would talk about how he's trying to really define a new breakout style for Win10 that would revolutionize file management as we know it. Over the course of a few months, he'd eventually have a few icons done and right before shipping he finishes this icon set that he's been 'slaving over'.

Because windows works for me, and it has much better support overall. Maybe linux is getting more support these days which is nice but it's still nowhere near windows, why would I use something with partial support of something I use when I can have something which has full support. Also linux is getting support mostly for newer stuff, which is why I love windows for it's backward compatibility, you can run programs and games a decade old mostly without a problem.

Gradients were shit, they encouraged shitty design and they were never done right. They're harder for designers to keep consistent with and they look cheezy as all fuck.

Bland and lifeless is the reason flat can be so good, it goes with anything, it's not distracting, it looks like actual technology rather than a shitty WordPress blog.

No it's not flat at all. Can you perceive depth? Don't you see the beveled edges on the windows? Or the start button? Also the colors are all wrong to be flat. Flat design uses colors that correspond to each other. They are almost pastel-like in tone. When someone designs something, it will determine whether that design looks like flat or win95 shit

The screenshots alone are infinitely more easy to navigate and more discoverable than any Android version. If only Google had opted for Inferno or Plan 9 as a base when it began the Android project.

Looks awesome, can't wait to try it out on my Note 3. The pen doesn't work on Cyanogenmod unfortunately but I imagine it would be great for Inferno if it did. I assume regular Limbo apps all work fine on this? Can I attach a 3 button mouse with USB OTG and use Acme?

Running it above Android/Linux and replacing Java in typical Inferno fashion is brilliant and perfect for phones with even weirder hardware/drivers than PCs, where systems like Ubuntu Touch and KDE Plasma Active fail by only supporting a handful of devices.

I don't browse Youtube and haven't been on 9fans long so I'm not too surprised I haven't seen it. It would make a good addition to cat-v though.

What the fuck are you shitposting about?
>>
>>46889834
I set padding to thick on borders.
It feels less sleek /new styled that way.

Putting the task bar at the top was the greatest thing I ever did. It's actually more productive.
Try it sometime if you use windows.

the colors looked better when I had it said to a dark black border, kept them around anyway though.

User icon is custom.. I can't get rid of that gay embossed look on it though, thats part of the interface.

Thanks for the review m8!

I once downloaded an icon set from deviantart that looked exactly like this. Makes me wonder if that's where they got it, just paid some random idiot 10 bucks to use his icons or something.

Windows 3.11/95/early mac icons were great because of this designer. Susan Kare knew how to actually design, and made all their icons.

Nowadays it's design by committee and 20 designers all trying to justify their shit design to get their mark on the product.

Make up your minds faggots. Though all of you just go where the industry's headed.

Is something wrong with me, because I can not see the difference here.
I mean, the "spaciousness". Both of those look flat, just with different themes.
Maybe I just don't understand the principles behind the "flat design" trend?
>>
>>46892145
They did the open folders in such a shit way, that they don't really look open at all, they look like solid image or something. I dunno.

Personally I don't mind flat design, but this is fucking terrible. The first time I saw it I thought it was just placeholder art, but nope, they actually thought this looked presentable apparently. Oh well, one more minor reason not to use Windows. Doesn't really affect me.

Wouldn't be half as bad if there weren't 8 different shades of blue

Does anyone have the edit with the less saturated yellow and fewer different shades?
>>
>>46887496
this, but reversed
>>
>>46884061
Best design:

Basically flat design but with few px shading around the edges of objects to make them "pop out". See: win 98 buttons, windows etc.

Form follows function, faggot. Minimalism is the natural march of practicality in design. Your age of needlessly over designed UI elements is at an end.

Get out.
