I've said it before and I'll say it again, Microsoft couldn't design a desktop theme to save their lives. The entire GUI department over there must be filled with former Fisher Price employees.... fired for having no talent whatsoever.
And to think, MS is actually proud of that.
I really hate the Win 10 Start Menu, with its additional panel filled with Fisher Price looking tiles. Even if you delete all the tiles the extra panel remains, unnecessarily taking up screen real estate
Like you said, Doc, thank goodness for WB and WSX.
