Razor512 Posted January 12, 2009 Share Posted January 12, 2009 $500 internets to who ever can guess the last 2 programs I am running I have it on the default UI settings, this can be fixed by changing some of the vista crap settings but I want to show everyone how microsoft intended windows to be and yes I know you can hover the mouse over the icon to eventually get a name, but thats a waste of time and a unneeded delay it is like removing the labels from every bottle of seasoning in your kitchen, instead of noticing which kind it is at a glance, you will have to open each bottle and taste it to find out which kind of seasoning it is yep isn't it great. windows 7 taskbar shows you programs based on their icon and if the program doesn't have a icon, it shows up with a generic graphic. so if you test out a lot of programs that have no icon pics, just a name, you will have 1 hell of a time trying to find the program you minimized desktop at 96 dpi http://img264.imageshack.us/img264/3284/96dpiro2.jpg desktop at 120 dpi http://img265.imageshack.us/img265/2240/120dpikc2.jpg desktop at 144 dpi http://img264.imageshack.us/img264/5228/144dpiuj4.jpg notice the taskbar, icons, and (not visible in the screenshot) the mouse cursor gets larger they seem to want to maintain the empty wasted space no matter which DPI is used even with the glass crap disabled, the OS is sluggish compared to windows xp, it is even slower than my windows vista install (provided, my vista install has much of the resource hogging crap disabled) microsoft like using 2 rows of crap to do the work of 1 row. everything on the taskbar can be placed on 1 row but they decided to make it a minimum of 2 rows (which you cant change unless you use a different theme) and for some reason I cant find the windows classic theme, it is either well hidden or was removed so users are forced into the windows 7 wasteful theme other then these problems, I cant tell the difference between vista and windows 7 (other than some options being even harder to find, what ever happened to related settings all being in 1 place like in xp, it is annoying going through 6 different setting windows to access the same options that were located in 1 windows in windows xp ) post anything that you would like me to test and I will try to do it unlike what microsoft believes, screen space really is important. screen space is the reason why we no longer use 10 inch crt's larger screens provide higher resolutions which increases your work space but microsoft sees it as "her these are people who used to use old 10 inch screens, now they have 20+ inch screens and higher resolution, that means we can fill their screens with 10+ inches worth of unnecessary UI elements and they wont mind" and they are slowly working towards this Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
