Funny, I see it as the polar opposite.


Also, you might be interested to know that ribbon was led by Julie Larson-Green , Sinofsky's understudy.

She didn't even have much to do with it, even though she was leading it either, other than playing the game in a big corporate environment.

I know who I'd rather run the show with Windows development.

Microsoft is a big monster. They really need to cut the workforce and make it lean and come out with innovative products. I have heard of guys writing about a thousand line of code for some feature for the Windows OS and it took a year to approve the code.

I have sort of learned to love the Ribbon, once you have loaded "search commands" from microsoft research and got your head round the idea its pretty good.


Windows 7 is the most stable and instantly usable operating system I have ever seen in the user space. (Linux may have the edge on timex style reliability but 7 is pretty close).

it can even be run secureish.

not sure about metro yet.

It is impossible to make a search engine. Only Google can do this. Atw told me this.


toffee at DuckDuckGo (http://duckduckgo.com/?q=toffee)
Toffee - Factbites (http://www.factbites.com/topics/Toffee)
Web Search - "toffee" - Exalead (http://www.exalead.com/search/web/results/?q=toffee)

etc etc.

:rolleyes:

Everybody under Sinofsky would have had to love and do ribbon as otherwise he'd fire them.

Sinofsky made a lot of big design decisions such as Metro tulip - fecking over good release of Windows with bad, perhaps he demanded Ballmer upgrades his office PC from Windows 7? :laugh
