It seems Microsoft loves to fix everything... except for those pesky things that are actualy broken. As long as it works, it will be "fixed". The idea of using menus is a classic example of this. First there were ribbons, then there were full-screen menus. Once there were interfaces with rich color gradients to make the windows look appealing. Now everythings even flatter than they were in the '90's.
Soon there will be a web browser that won't even try to work with "old" webpages. Gee, I wonder why Google Chrome (or Chromium) is so much more popular than IE. Could it be that IE is just getting worse and worse with each new version?
