Active buttons in Windows 8, a mind trick

Fool's design.

Active buttons in Windows 8, a mind trick.

What kind of "designer" uses a light blue ONE PIXEL THIN line to mark a light gray button as currenly active?
That's right. Not a sane designer but only a fool.

The 2D flatness makes me want to vomit. The sharp corners and HTML+CSS geometry is just so amateur.

Yet for some strange reason they still utilize the Windows Vista/7 icons here rather than the Metro retard versions. I wonder why?

I can't believe I miss the old MSVB common dialogs. Thanks a lot MicroTards.

The good old days, where buttons were buttons. Even the simple sharp corners of Windows 3.x look much more professional than Windows 8.

Hard to believe, but windows and buttons even in Win3.x look more polished than in Windows 8.

Keep up the great work.
