I don't care about the design at all. To me, that photo shows that wasted space is the new normal. But I guess we've reached an aged where tech isn't really moving forward, so why no just attempt art? Its boring.

Well, thats one of the reasons they wanna UWP file explorer.
Explorer.exe is a cancerous clusterfuck that has tentacles into the UI, taskbar, IE, etc.
They got rid of the last, partially converted startmenu and taskbat, and are going for fileexplorer now.

"works best" in the sense that "it's the lowest common denominator". It's incredibly shitty, but its the best you can do if having the same UI on every device is a requirement.

In other words, phones are shitting up everything else. Again.

It "functions" like shit on a desktop/laptop/anything else that doesn't have a touch screen

>> No.62561538

it's not very functional, but its the best you can do on a phone. A desktop has many more functional, information-dense interfaces it can use that a phone can't (because it has more screen area and better input devices) but we get held back to the flat-design bullshit because the tech world has such a hard-on for phones. (MS's universal platform, Apple's iOS-ifying of everything, Canonical and "convergence"...)

Phones were a mistake.

It's quite functional, you just want something to mindlessly bitch about

Even if it did fuck up the performance the change is minuscule compared to fluent design and UWP apps

>> No.62569207

Looks like a lot of space is wasted.

>> No.62569256

The change was actually pretty dramatic from XP.
Also it's not on the entire window. And fluent changes based on hardware without a dramatic shift in visual styles, you just won't get transparency for example.
