It's kind of funny how bringing back rounded corners is such a big deal with Windows 10 and that's what they call a major design overhaul. The Metro design language is a lot of things, but attractive is not one of them. They took flat UI to the extreme in Windows 10. It's clean, but it's also lifeless. Adding rounded corners will help, but the UI still has very little visual depth or interest.


Before I installed 10 for the first time on my gaming laptop, I already planned to run Open Shell and Glass8. Now I can't daily drive 10 without them.

Can't imagine any userbase booting up Windows 10, open up the Start menu and stare at it all day.  The only other userbase that may have to stare at windows decorations all day are sys admins.  And even they might prefer Windows 98-esque styles for less distraction.


The rest of everyone else should be looking at the content area in a spreadsheet, an app, a browser, or an IDE.
