Windows 8: The Boldest, Biggest Redesign In Microsoft’s History
I’ve been Mac user since 2008. Before that I was Windows user all the way since 1993. I wasn’t a big fan of Microsoft UIs back in the day. It was just ok design and visually not interesting at all.
Now that Microsoft made the biggest UI design on their leading OS, Windows, I have to say it’s actually quite interesting change. Yes, I know some people had a very hard time finding how to turn off the computer or other very basic functions. That was quite messed up. However, it doesn’t simply mean the design itself is bad. If you look closely, there is many interesting designs in it and you can absolutely learn from it.
It’s more educational for UX practitioners to think about WHY they designed this way and WHAT intention was behind it. I recommend to do it, It’s quite a good practice.

It’s recommended to read this article both beginner and expert UX practitioners. It’s always quite interesting how other professionals setup their own lab.
