Operating systems should be visually neutral, they should sit well with any environment and theme.

MacOS went through the same trajectory, starting off nice, minimalist and clean, going through an ugly glossy phase in the mid-00s, then returning back to its roots.

Can't stand the brushed metal look. The dock is certainly better than the 2007 attempt, but there are still too many gradients and rounded edges for me. Give me flat colours and sharp lines every day of the week.

EDIT: Oh you changed the picture lol

Yeah it's a lot better, much more flat

The market has been crying out for designs made of something other than brushed metal for a long time, but that is most definitely not the solution!

I really quite like the fabric elements that MS have been using on some aspects of their surface line for a while now - something like that is much more of a positive step in the design of tech.

Just looks like someone has stuck that horrible wood-effect laminate over the top of it.

Loads of problems with Windows 10 at the moment:

Techradar wrote:Windows 10 gets yet another faulty update with broken Start menu

Come on Microsoft

Microsoft release a cumulative patch, KB4517389, only a few days ago which was supposed to fix a number of highly publicised errors, and while it seems to have fixed the printer problems that were plaguing Windows 10 recently, it seems like the Start menu continues to have issues.

If news that Microsoft has released a Windows 10 update in an attempt to fix issues, only to introduce new problems, seems familiar, that’s because Microsoft has had an astonishingly bad run of faulty updates recently.

Only a few days ago we reported on how another cumulative update, KB4524147, had introduced more bugs, and it seems that Microsoft has rushed out this new update to fix those bugs, while causing the Start menu to fail with a critical error.

As any Windows user knows, the Start menu is a pretty essential feature of Windows 10 – and being unable to use it is a huge problem.

Start menu woes

As Windows Latest points out, users on the Microsoft community forum and Reddit have been complaining that the October 8 update (another name for KB4517389) has been breaking the Start menu and causing a critical error.

According to Microsoft’s support documentation, the company claims that the issue is not significantly impacting a large number of users. That won’t be much comfort to the people who are experiencing the problem. However, Microsoft does say that it is investigating the reports of the broken Start menu, though it does appear like the company is stumped about why this issue is occurring.

It’s yet another round of bad news for Microsoft when it comes to faulty Windows 10 updates, and the company needs to get on top of this fast – otherwise its reputation could be irreparably damaged.

I've also had a number of silly glitches with the Xbox One dash, so I don't know what's going on with their software teams at the moment. Shambles.
