Now if only we could get the ability back to change the color of the title bar text, that'd be great lol.

Sounds like a little bit of sanity is finally coming to Windows 8. Not a minute too soon, either.

I wonder what all the people that argued that it wasn't necessary are going to say?

The whole problem with Windows 8 is the lack of visual cues to show you where certain UI elements are. A UI is supposed to empower the user, not make them feel stupid. That's where Windows 8 fails. Every single time I've sat a first time user in front of Windows 8, they know how to get to the desktop right away via the tile but after that they're completely and utterly lost. I even had one tell me wow this OS is horrible, it's making me feel like an idiot.

There was a comment a while back by Tammy Reller at MS and she said something about telemetry showing that new users found the charms "in about an hour". Excuse me? It's not something to be proud of when the average user takes an HOUR to find your UI. That means you failed miserably as UX designers and need to go back to the drawing board.


Perfect... People need to remember that the average users don't belong to Neowin.net.
