    This is unusable crap, sorry.

    If one want to make a good and usefull GUI he or she must study at least old GUIs of classical Windows 3.x and 9.x, Apple’s classical System (from the era before OS X), NeXT, Sun’s OpenWindows, CDE and so on. These old GUIs were made with human understanding in mind, not about stupid bells and whistles.

    Most of new GUIs are ugly and unfriendly (espesially for “non-computer” folks) because they are painted by people who have totally no real knowledge in subject of usability, ergonomics, aestethics etc. They know only about semitransparent gradients, tiny faded fonts for microscoping, and flat depressively uncontrasty space. “Because we can do it!” Oh…

    If you want to see a really good interface for human-machine interacting take a look on your grandfathers’ cars with no electronical s**t, mechanical photocameras, crafting tools, and alike.

    More than often, developers are not artist and this is why concepts will always look better. But if we could get developers who were artist, that would be something to behold. I do like his/her concept and would love to see it in practice.

    Because if you're going to be stuck staring at something (at work) for several hours, you may as well like what you see (and it should be easy to use too).

    You should look at your worksheets/apps not the design of the theme/background.

    I'm just curious: Can Windows XP be considered abandonware now?

    They will probably decide to be asses and just switch off the activation servers, eventually. Too bad there's offline activation, right? ;)

    I can't see MS ever releasing a tool to activate XP. Too many people would escape to it, depriving MS of income.

    If it ever became open source (HA!) you can be assured many good coders would be enhancing it to the point where no one would ever touch any official MS turd again.

    I have 3 legit XP boxes to rebuild and activate. We'll see if that still works.
