Now I don’t consider myself a dog hater; heck no! EH has sported enough puppy pictures to keep any dog lover happy and me vaguely embarrassed.
But when I am in “My Documents” in Windows XP and I click on “Search” I want a text input field, not a three-D puppy. This thing annoys me each and every time I see it.
Lordie, why did I leave 2000 for the siren call of XP? The default interface looks like Mickey Mouse designed it.
And no gloating, you Mac OsX types, your interface looks more like it came out of a Bed, Bath and Beyond catalog. C’mon, chrome is for bath fixtures and 1950’s chevy’s.
Of course, these are entirely SUBJECTIVE opinions. I’m sure somebody out there feels their life has been muchly improved now that their widgets have the illustion of being three dimensional.
