S&T 2013 RRS feed

  • Question

  • I just downloaded the 2013 S&T and all of the icons on top when you open program make it look like this is a beta product. they are just white icons that have a brown background behind it. this does not look like the other versions, i have all of the other S&T. Maybe it didnt load correctly, please advise

  • Hi Docg,

    It seems that some people like it, and some hate it. It's the new Windows 8 look. My first impression of it was actually positive, as now it seems to be easier to recognize which buttons have been enabled.

  • I'm in the more negative camp about Metro design principles (backing off from Vista's bells & whistles is good; but perhaps a step too far?),. However the "2009 era" buttons in MP/S&T aren't the clearest in the world, so in the long run it might be better?
