I think the new one looks like 8-bit 'IT crowd' art. It's not bad, just bad in this context.

It is probably just a fashion, like windows 8 / office 2013 flatness. I doubt there is any practical reason for changing the icons to look ghetto'er.

Microsoft seems to have abandoned depth. Perhaps they are working toward a 'Pay for the 3rd Dimension' business model.

I had that bug too, and for sure it was a pain in the ass. I think they released an update in the last year or two which fixed it.

for all the non believers, here is a technet page with many people having that problem. might have required a renstall of the os to fix. I dont have the problem anymore anyways.

And as others say, it didn't always occur, but when it did, very annoying. For me it was in my downloads directory on a local hard drive. Annoying because I had to constantly refresh to see if things had downloaded yet.

I looked forward to shipping our dirty oil to the americans! Now it has to go east or west. Ontario is much too strong to let it go through there, and the people of BC will never let the pipeline be built to the west.

Boo! Canadians will hate obama because of this. It was such a great solution to our domestic tar sands blight.

Comment: The obvious solution: STOP (Score 2) 288

All these replies, and not one person has said that they would stop.

I always stop if someones coming at me with a phone. 9 times out of 10, for whatever reason, they process a static object in-front of them differently and look up before collision. Most likely also apologizing to me at the same time.

If 2 walkers collide, it could be said that they were both negligent. If someone walks into you though, they look like a complete dumbass and cannot possibly blame you (after all you are simply standing there, already staring at them angrily)
