I still don't understand how Microsoft was able to create a worse looking and less usable UI then even the KDE guys.

They couldn't even be consistent with themselves most of their own programs use a completely different design which makes it feel like the whole UI was hacked together by a dozen different people who didn't speak to each other and all did their own thing.
And every single one of these developers absolutely hated designing UIs so they all did the easiest thing possible and put boxes everywhere.

It's not socializing, it's background processes that use up data and do shit that I don't want and cannot be turned off. I'm not some anime jerking neckbeard freak who plays games all day. Actually I don't really use computers for more than email, weather, and programming. Because I have a real social life with real people. These things are cool for organizing and business and such, but honestly they are no replacement for real world friends and hobbies.

Window frames are worthless, you can quickly move around windows, minimize, and maximize with the tap of less than 4 keys. Even on wangblows.

>>60978222

So you admit Windows fails? I'm a bit confused about your position. Why would hundreds of Microsoft programmers put in the ability to move, minimize, and maximize windows with hotkeys if it was destined to fail?

Looks are subjective.

>>60978332
There's literally a "theme changer" open. You can make your UI white.
But I still prefer ChaletOS UI. It looks like AERO which is imho beautiful.
>>
>>60978352
they didn't made the hotkeys as the only way to manage windows.

People wanting to use the machine don't want to read a 300 page manual to be able to use it.
>>
>>60978430
>300 pages to describe holding the windows button and pressing direction keys.
>>
>>60978245
Literally every HI/UI-design guidelines.
Just get one of the standard books like the one from Shneiderman or Roggers.
Major example: The menu bar goes against the rule that related things should be next to each others.
Fortunately another rule is that you can keep dogshit design if your users got used to it over a decade of hyping.

Exercise: Figure out why vi/vim/nvim is also garbage.
>>
>>60978455
when people discover hotkeys is by mere accident, not because they read the whole user guide.
>>
>>60978413
not gunna lie, that looks like ass
>>
>>60978491
In Linux you make your hotkeys, so they work best for you. It's done via a quick and easy UI. No commands needed, just a setting. Regardless of this, wangblows requires a fuckton of thirdparty shitware just to be able to do something as simple as universal hotkeys. Something as simple as customizing the color of your windows beyond the frame is an immense process of having to reverse compiling DLLs and editing msstyles. The only thing wingdings has over Linux is SLI for games, literally everything else can be done within Linux for fucking free. I can run GPU passthrough and acceleration on Adobe photoshop on Linux. I can run DX12 games with just 2fps less than windblangs in Linux. Its just a matter of how much effort you want to put in it. If you want to be lazy and have a shit inconsistent interface, with shit inconsistent bugs and crashes, fine go ahead and use wabbles to your hearts content. Just know that there are better options available.

GNU/Linux desktops from 2004 have nicer looking UIs than modern, phone tier, windows crap.

Then you end up with something like Mac OS. Looks okay, unified design, decent animations, but the actual system is garbage and doesn't work. Too busy making it look pretty, not enough time put in the background.

I think unity is the best desktop out there. Windows isn't even close despite the UI bugs. OSx is okay but I don't know how anyone could think that windows is good let alone better then the other UIs. It doesn't even have tab file browsing.
