  • [QUOTE=Simspelaaja;34845600]Those new toolbar icons look absolutely terrible.[/QUOTE] Just like the rest of the UI design Microsoft are doing for Windows 8 and so on. I know this will probably be passed off as "hurrr i hate change" but honestly I think it's a horrible, horrible UI. Call me what you will, but I haven't seen anything in Windows 8 that makes it worth the switchover, and I will be sticking with Windows 7 for a loooong time.

  • It lives! [img]http://i.imgur.com/rhX6l.png[/img] This is init.js's source code: [code] console.log("Hello world from JavaScript!"); console.log("My bytecode is " + Kernel.modules["/kernel/init.jmg"].length + " bytes long"); [/code] The reason it's panicing is because I'm trying to take the length of a string, which isn't implemented yet

A given UI might look and feel very nice on my phone but would be atrocious on my desktop. Microsoft needs to realize that phones are phones and PCs are PCs and stop trying to use the same theme for both.
