Visual Studio 11 Beta looks really nice yet boring. [IMG]http://i.cubeupload.com/YqS4Fe.png[/IMG] It's interesting I said the same thing as the person below me yet everyone disagrees with me and agrees with him.
It's really nice, besides that light grey color making it look incredibly dull.
[QUOTE=Blackizzle;34701711]It's really nice, besides that light grey color making it look incredibly dull.[/QUOTE] I wish it had more life in it. Zune software in the list view is primarily white, though with some subtle colors behind it, which makes it look really nice, yet still Metro-y, but this grey in the Mail app, Office 15, and now Visual Studio 11 just looks bland and dull. It's lifeless. I'm surprised at how consistently inconsistent Microsoft's design team for Windows is.
[QUOTE=Panda X;34701058]Visual Studio 11 Beta looks really nice yet boring. [IMG]http://i.cubeupload.com/YqS4Fe.png[/IMG][/QUOTE] It mainly looks boring because it's just a metro theme slapped on the old toolbar layout etc. I'm not saying VS should get a new layout, I don't really want them to mess with it since it works - but it's not really proper metro since you still can't use drop down menus on a touch screen etc. And, seeing as Metro is supposed to focus on Typography, there is a definite lack of nice typography that there normally is in Metro applications.

Not only that, but branding is like one of the last things that gets done with Windows.

[QUOTE=Jimmy422;34704068]The new magnifier looks like shit. It's so bland. Why do they even need scroll bars when there is simple pinch to zoom?[/QUOTE] Application gesture conflict I would assume.
Where's the beta?

Not to mention, I can't envision anyone using their home PC by fingering the fuck out of their LCD.

Jimmy was asking why magnifier looked like this with the 4 scrollbars when there is pinch to zoom. The scrollbars are only for touch, a point which apparently you a gparent missed.

[QUOTE=Sam Za Nemesis;34700193]Depends on the case, Resistive is overall more accurate, cheaper and more durable than capacitive, Whereas capacitive can give 'softer' touches and making it unable to use with anything other than a finger[/QUOTE] What? Resistive is no where near as accurate as capacitive, it's far cheaper and works well with detecting objects and through clothing but capacitive supports up to five touch points sometimes more and because it works by conductivity you just need to get a stylus designed for them and you can also get gloves designed to work with it as well. And if not applied well resistive can have big problems with sensing such as on one type of Android tablets I was selling the stupid thing would jump and even detect at a totally different point on the screen, but with capacitive Tablets and phones there's been no problem.
I would like to try windows 8 but is it worth to dual-boot my computer with windows 7 and windows 8? Don't have any other computer that is good enough then my main desktop.
I didn't miss a single thing, I just think it was exactly that, a demonstration showcasing extra features, but maybe they're really dumb enough to include it in the stock interface, given how we're talking about MS here.

i got access to msdnaa (its called dreamspark now for whatever reason) im redownloading the windows 8 dev preview and going to mess around with it. Surprisingly they also has vista and xp there for you to grab licences to. The xp one was considered a dev tool.

Don't have any other computer that is good enough then my main desktop.[/QUOTE] I wouldn't, unless you don't game much or use that many demanding apps or things in which failure could be a problem, I wouldn't install Windows 8 over 7, but dual booting is such a pain. Do you have a spare HDD?
I've ran windows 8 dev preview for 6 months as my primary OS, never had any compatibility problems or games that couldn't run..

Can try to get it to run on one of my shit old computers I got for free but it could not even run Ubuntu 10.10 :v:
