Windows 10 Technical Preview build 9926 comes with a collection of new icons, and as we could all see in the leaked screenshots of new builds, more new icons are expected to be introduced very soon.

In this case, it's not quite as subjective as usual .. the icons in that shot are not consistent in terms of color usage, perspective or lighting. Even emblems on the icons are not consistently rendered / placed.

It really looks like a half-finished icon theme, or 2-3 themes that were mashed together in a blender. There is nothing subjective about those things: they are measurable.

Whether it matters to you or not is another matter. Some people don't notice such things at all, but the vast majority of human beings do, even if they are unable to point out the "what" of the thing that bugs them.

The alignment of items in that window is also just HORRIBLE (another measurable thing fwiw).

The subjective question, really, is: does that new yellow folder look good?

I'll bet most people will react negatively to them due to the choice of insipid yellow, trying to make a flat 3D object (which is an oxymoron), the lack of symmetry in it, and how poorly it works with overlays. But, that particular issue I will admit, is rather subjective.

The rest, not so much. That screenshot is measurably horrible.

New blog post:
want to write a completely QML based application?
want it to use some neat KDE Frameworks features that makes writing QML applications easier?
How about rewriting in a legacy-free way Systemsettings modules in QML?
http://notmart.org/blog/2015/03/writing-qml-based-apps-the-kde-way/
This is an interesting transitional period in the Qt world for desktop applications. We are in the phase where QML is becoming better and better for the use in a Desktop context, even for full fledged applications. We noticed that there were some bits derived from the many years of experience in ...

absolutely horrible, do not buy stuff from vendors that design hardware against you http://arstechnica.com/information-technology/2015/03/windows-10-to-make-the-secure-boot-alt-os-lock-out-a-reality/
Windows 10 hardware must support Secure Boot and won't have to let you turn it off.

This is why if there is no need for portability, a Desktop is better. Motherboards tend to still be Secure Boot off.

I think this should be standard equipment for any hardware, especially for answering comments on the Internet
