    As usual Microsoft doesn’t get it. Those horrid color choices, flat tiles. Eye candy UI sells devices. Trying to squeeze every last minute of battery life by making everything flat won’t help if nobody buys the devices.

      Minimalist design is much more sexier and content-focused than gradients and bulky designs… get with the times bro or go use a dated Mac.

      Forward thinking… why do u think android and even iOS are adopting a “flatter” design language? I think ms gets it, and everyone else is finally getting it…
