Re: Sacrificing functionality for simplicity

said by Kramer:

In some way I agree with you and in others I disagree. I do think Microsoft has dumbed some things down to the point where they are more difficult to use because of the simplicity that is almost unnaturally forced. Look at the mail app in Metro if you want an example. ...

I don't think you disagreed with me at all .

Maybe not... but I think they have introduced additional complexity not so much to make things simpler, but just because they weren't creative enough to get the job done in a better way. The YinYang Metro/Desktop dancing act would be a perfect example.
