Roku Finally Gets a 2D Menu System 80

DeviceGuru writes "Many of us have griped for years about Roku's retro one-dimensional user interface. Finally, in conjunction with the release of the new Roku 3 model, the Linux-based media streaming player is getting a two-dimensional facelift, making it quicker and easier to access favorite channels and find new ones. Current Roku users, who will now begin suffering from UI-envy, will be glad to learn that Roku plans to push out a firmware update next month to many earlier models, including the Roku LT, Roku HD (model 2500R), Roku 2 HD, Roku 2 XD, Roku 2 XS, and Roku Streaming Stick. A short demo of the new 2D Roku menu system is available in this YouTube video."

Comment: I like Windows 8 (Score 1) 791

I do like Windows 8. Even more than 7. The ribbons are actually useful in the explorer. I like the new design. These flat colors rather than gradients. And finally the new start menu aka tiles. I prefer them over the classic start menu and it still allows my win7-way to start programs (win key -> start to type the application name -> hit [Enter]). I do not like the app store. I don't want a Microsoft account, especially not a hotmail account. That sucks. Even though I like Windows RT and WinJS so far.

You know you've been spending too much time on the computer when your friend misdates a check, and you suggest adding a "++" to fix it.
