Microsoft threw that idea out with Windows 8: core changes were good, but the forward facing GUI/Interface was a drastic change that looks different and functions about the same or WORSE. It's likely this started to creep in with Vista onwards, along with the Ribbon-mentality.
The other problem(s) are most noticeable when you do a jump like I did, from Win2000 to Win7, Office2000 to Office2013, etc. Compared to a "normal" customizable toolbar, Ribbons are less flexible, take up more real-estate and usually require more clicks to get the same task accomplished than before.
Where things haven't really changed, it's business as usual --- yet where it has changed, it's almost always worse. Every time I need to uninstall a program my brain does a disconnect trying to locate the "Uninstall" button in "Programs and Features"
The most interesting CMS's I've seen are Concrete5 and ProcessWire.
The biggest pain-in-the-ass has been Joomla --- funny that it's one of the most popular of the bunch.
Also it's quite interesting to see where the HTML spec has headed with the display property --- see inline-flex, flex, and flex-box.
One thing MS actually got right - and should of been the standard from the beginning is:
Padding & Margins were included in an elements size (width and height).
It is a complete pain in the ass trying to position elements in HTML when something like this:
[div style="width:600px;margin:10px 10px; padding:5px 5px;"]
is actually 630px wide...and to get an actual 600px width (total) you need to make the div be 570px since the element does NOT include layout spacing in the height/width settings. That aspect of HTML is nothing short of ass-backwards.
Primitive or aboriginal dogs are canids that have kept close to the original form and have evolved with little or no purposeful human intervention. They spread throughout the world with the first colonizers but preserved a loose association with man.
Primitive dogs in all countries have a very similar, typical morphology known as the "long-term pariah morphotype" (LTPM) or primal body design from which most other dog forms are derived: a wolf or fox-like appearance with wedge-shaped head and a pointed muzzle, almond eyes, erect ears, for optimal sound retrieval and possibly body temperature regulation, and a long, curved tail.
We found out about this interesting subset recently, when we found out that our "mongrel" puppy was actually a Canaan breed.

Yeah I'd say it's not vulnerable to a harddrive filling exploit.
Opera definitely has issues with site-compatibility - usually due to browser sniffing, than actual standards that aren't implemented.
But it is far and above most of it's kin as far as security is concerned.
--- of course slashdot is removing some of the high-ansi chars I just pasted.
Basic Risk rules are flawed for sure, even if all you consider is the value of retaining certain "continents" per round.
As is, attempting to implement pre-spec features makes the css a complete mess, e.g. 4 rounded corner borders could require up to 16 lines of css.
Also appears to be primarily apple-only, as the "remote" is for the iphone. Awesome way to kill sales.
It's pretty sad that cmd.exe can handle lists of files easier than a linux shell script. Heck with UnxUtils you can even use (G)AWK with a cmd batch script. Of course these days, I'm more likely to write a needed script with AutoHotkey - that easily understands spaces, unicode, windows, processID's, and what have you.
Maybe things are better now? But the last time I dealt with linux bash (or most of the shell tools/cmds) - unicode characters in either filenames or within the files (parsing text) caused major issues or would just flat out fail. Not to mention the absolute nightmare of trying to deal with escaping special characters and escaping escaped escapes...
