Yea it does, dealing with this right now at work where all staff went from Office 2K3 to 2K7 to 2K13 in the last 2 years. They all hate the changes but a handful of managers that are in a building elsewhere make these decisions without asking for the opinions of the people who actually use them. Hooray for bureaucracy.

This article is from the end of last year. I admit I haven't looked at them since, maybe their not terrible now.

However, I have a Surface RT from work running an nvidia tegra 3. I can count on one hand the number of times I've used it. Mine is jailbroken to run classic start and putty and a few other things but it's locked down with a "secure" bootloader aka can't run fuck all else and is essentially an even more crippled version of Windows 8 (which I personally loathe). Kindles have gone this direction too, shitty walled gardens.

Don't vote for this kind of garbage with your money.

This is nothing new, as past style changes have had similar effects. However, this pass there are significant usability changes: A narrower read pane, limited moderation filtering, and several color/size/font adjustments. BETA implies not yet complete, so taking that cue — please list your specific, detailed opinoins, one per comment, and let's use the best part of slashdot (the moderation system) to raise the attention to these. Change can be jarring, but let's focus on the true usability differences with the new style."
