Google Reddit user mr03 created a very thorough visual comparison to show just how much Android has changed over the years. No text, just pictures. It's amazing how dated older releases look.

Why complaining ?

Same icons ? Icons on a grid ? Why changing everything at each iteration, for God's sake ? Microsoft tried that with Modern UI, Apple with iOS 7, and now everyone complains because of the change !

You'll never be satisfied with what you get. "Uho, just an increase of screen resolution, 500 dpi is so useless because it drains the battery" or "Naaah, skeudomorphisms uber aless !"

I remember my Atari ST with its barely monochrome desktop and icons, no body complained and had the job done. Sometimes the KISS (Keep It Simple and Stupid) principle is a prerequisite !

Indeed. It had multitasking, what the Atari's TOS lacked of. Not to mention the numerous bugs and difficult expandability. But I digress...
