Apple "Sources have described iOS 7 as 'black, white, and flat all over'. This refers to the dropping of heavy textures and the addition of several new black and white user interface elements." I couldn't be happier.

When I first time use Windows 8 I was:

"wtf? this looks like my Atari TOS from 1985." - it is stupidly ugly - they remove visual elements even in case where they are used to emphasise certain part of UI - it is stupid and ugly.

btw now even TOS from 1985. looks better than Windows 8.

Don't push the line too far, TOS 1 isn't even multitasking, what Windows 8 is. Try doing some networking with your beloved TOS 1... Now, speaking of MultiTos/Mint/FreeMint, that's another trend.

"looks better" != "works better"

The OP wasn't comparing how TOS worked on the Atari to how Windows 8 works on the PC; he was comparing the "look'n fell" of TOS to the "look'n feel" of Windows 8.
