Meanwhile in real life, here's your "fluent design system":
Not to mention the myriad of dialogs and preference panels that date back to Windows 95/NT4 that still litter the system.
This was all I was thinking as I scrolled through the page. Ha!
Congrats. You've identified why this video exists.
Seems like I am the only one that is seriously underwhelmed. And you know that when you'll open up some properties screen in the depths of windows 5 years from now, it will continue to look like windows 95, plus Segoe UI. I feel like this is a lot of fluff with no real consistency, red line that follows through.
The System talks more about how it is supposed to look, instead of how its supposed to be interacted with - Light, depth, motion, material, scale. This is almost only a description of the style they go for. Maybe I don't understand this correctly, but this is not a design system to me, instead its a "this is what we think is trendy".
This seems like one of the first design languages that is meant to address not only 2D UI, but also elements of mixed reality and sensory experiences. I'm very impressed.
Now, need to learn Cinema 4D :(
It looks like they have recruited some dribbblers.
It's official! Flat design is dead.
Not really. Based on some interfaces on the video, it seems like a logic evolution of Metro.
holy compressed images batman
Microsoft is becoming cool + taking on the Apple core audience - creatives. Apple, you need to wake up :D
Nah, one minute into Windows 10 and you'll find designs/icons that'll take you right back to Windows 95. I like this idea, but they should focus on consistency rather than just adding new layers of paint. Apple imho does this very well. Very few built-in applications look outdated.
Very few built-in applications look outdated.
Very few applications older than 5 years run either......
Microsoft is indeed cooler than Apple this days*, but this presentation was very incoherent and lacking in concrete information. Lot's of marketing buzzwords.
- Not hard, considering how Apple ecosystem now seems the materialization of their 1984 ad back in the day.
Guys, its fine, we all use/used apple ecosystem products. it's not "thinking different" nowadays to do so. we are not the late 90s-early 00s.
It's like Minority Report, but even better.
I just wish Windows have same style icons
That is really good, thanks!
Designing focusing on VR is like designing for 2% of the population of USA only. It is so non-inclusive.
you could have said the same thing about touchscreen phones 10 years ago.
I strongly disagree. Touch screen is a way of interaction for your cellphone — a communication device; VR requires a wearable device that allows a different interaction via your cellphone, computer, etc.
I think it looks nice, a very polished update to Metro (or whatever it is technically called). I hope they have a good system in place to encourage third-party app consistency.
Unlike with Apple and Google smartphones, Windows users can and often do ignore the built in store. This makes it very hard to control quality.
