  1. Debating aside, something tells me a lot of you have really poor eyes. I have none of the issues you guys list with flat coloring - not knowing which window has focus, where borders are, reading text, etc. There's also a big difference between general flat UI and the failure of a UI that came with Ccleaner 5, which indeed has very unclear coloring and such. http://puu.sh/dO0M7/72f8d28e14.png <- a properly done flat UI
  2. *Metro, not all of Win8. This is 8: I use a hotkey->keyword launcher as I've always found the start menu to be an annoying way to find programs anyway. My custom start menu only has the stuff I need it to have.
  3. Nobody reads terms & conditions.... It's always a bunch of lawyerspeak to state the overly obvious nobody needs to hear. If we had to read those things every time we had to, we'd die of old age before getting anything done. If only they'd include basic "translations" that only contain the essential stuff in words we could all understand... Like what Creative Commons does with their licenses.
  4. Insults aside, one argument in favor of the apparently much-hated flat style of today is that it's "calmer" and easier on the eyes. I've always felt fancy 3D effects, glass, etc to make my desktop look very busy and stressful, while the flat style is less intrusive. Secondly, the flat style reminds me of pictograms, the point of which is to be simple to understand, universal and obvious. Once again, I'm only speaking about the flat style here, not the fact that the new UI has custom element and window decoration. Things like buttons and windows should always be rendered according to the ho
  5. Because there's no point wasting that power on unnecessary bloat. And there are people who prefer a flat style over all that glossy stuff.
  6. This guy gets it. Please remember though that while most people are nagging about the UI because it's now flat and they don't like flat, there are also those who oppose the new UI because of its awful window frame and custom decoration of control elements. On Win7, a single program using the flat style isn't gonna do a thing about performance (the performance boost depends on how exactly the new look is achieved anyway) and only sticks out like a sore thumb. Win8 already has the flat style natively, overriding it with their own custom one is just wrong on so many levels. Note that styling
  7. Not to undermine your point, but let's not generalize all Win8 users as Metro users. I love Win8 because of the flatter colors and icons, but I also think Metro is awful (and I say that being a long-time dedicated programmer with experience in and knowledge of a lot of digital stuff). The funny thing is that many people don't seem to realize win8 also has a normal desktop with normal windows, and that I for example haven't seen Tiles, Charms or Metro windows since... ever. It's just like using Win7. I had a friend who'd rather die than use Win8, but when he told me his reasons I debunked every
  8. Am I the only one who also just cares about the technical side of things? The UI isn't terrible because it looks terrible (I kinda prefer the flat color style even), but because they went and used custom skinning on standardized supposed-to-be-native UI elements: scrollbars, buttons, the title bar, the window buttons, etc are all custom. That's just an awful idea, programs are meant to ask the OS to draw those because the OS knows what the user wants in terms of colors and such, and the user can have customizations and window management tools installed that won't work with custom windows. My W
  9. Not to mention that custom window decoration also breaks mods like RBTray, Xtrabuttons, Windowblinds, etc for no good reason. Interoperability through standardization is more important than fancy looks and an identity.
  10. I personally prefer the flat look, I switched from 7 to 8.1 just to get rid of all that silly 3D/glass/shiny effect in 7 and am loving it. Of course I had to make 8.1 behave like 7 as much as possible, but that part went well. I love the straight corners, flat colors, etc that I have now. Feels much more efficient and technical, less like a toy. But Metro =/= flat look. The modern flat look is nice, the Metro appearance absolutely isn't. Metro is awful. This is what I mean with the flat look: http://puu.sh/d8ii2/1e3e06b56c.png (note that the red X button visually doesn't touch the corn
  11. I've been doing some more experimenting and it turns out this is more a bad formulation in the settings: on the Defrag tab, there's an option to "only move files of specified types" (for moving them to the end of the drive). You'd think that if you uncheck this, it'll move all files of >x MB to the end, but instead it just doesn't move them to the end of the drive at all and stacks them up between the rest of the files. I checked the option and set some more extensions, then let it run and now it moved my files correctly... Untill i paused it, stopped it and restarted it (after checking the
  12. Problem: in v1.5 (the last before the new v2), if you defragged your drive and had the option "move files of more than x MB to the end of the drive" enabled, you'd see Defraggler defragment all your files and additionally move non-fragmented files of >x MB towards the end as well. So if you had, say, set x = 128, then all your files would be defragmented and all files of >128MB would be stacked onto the end of the drive. V2 no longer does this, it only moves files of >128MB towards the end if it has to defragment them. Non-fragged files of >128MB just stay where they are as long
  13. I don't really know what you're saying there, but i just meant that perhaps someone from Piriform could send you a mail or something with instructions for the French translation and one to me for the Dutch translation... I wanna help out a bit, got time enough on my hands and i wanna do something for Piriform as a thank-you for the great software. Piriform guys, could you send the two of us (and any other translaters) a mail with instructions please? Our fingers are itching to write some translations
  14. I can do a Dutch translation for you (=the Piriform team, not mr. Owned here...) And don't worry, seeing how much i hate bad translations in other programs, i'll make sure to do a good job on it Just say how
  15. I don't know if this has been suggested, but since Speccy makes an accurate analysis of everything (apparently including my drivers), perhaps it could also scan for updates? That'd be a very appreciated feature since i've tried at least 6 different driver updaters and none were reliable. Either they simply looked extremely unprofessional (like cartoon characters on the buttons), weren't free (*points at Driver Detective*), did everything behind the screens and showed no info whatsoever, ... The other thing is that they ALL gave me different updates of different drivers, which is sorta odd. I m
