NO MICROSOFT FOR FUCK SAKE NO!

I have a fucking 15inch screen and that left side menu is eating 25% of it! IF you gonna throw in a new "Creative" design, make the damn menu re sizable, NO I DO NOT WANT TO HIDE THE LABELS AND MEMORIZE YOUR STUPID ICONS!

At least do what Gitlab did, a nice small menu that DOES NOT EAT HALF THE DAMN SCREEN!

Oh, did I say anything about sub menu hell that pops up whenever your mouse hover over any of the items on the left? Yaaa... that goes to a brand new rant!

    @Stuxnet I hope not, it was a really well designed website but now it is just fucked up.

    I hope gitlab doesn't follow

    Even bitbucket has that side menu but I didn't feel it is effecting my work, but that UI gave me a heart attack the moment I saw it :\

    Hmm we are using TFS at work but that UI is really shit as well.

    There is a whole new generation (not age related) of "UI/UX" experts who are foisting a number of horrid new UI patterns on the world. Their biggest crime, however, is that they feel that everything done until now is "wrong", and that there is no need to provide users with a way to continue doing things that aren't "right". Why provide an option to continue using a current UI when the users so obviously don't know what's best for them?

    @Codex404 it is not the best out there but better than the one they are doing now

    @monkeyboy unfortunately true, it is all about what they think and not what statistics show :\

    @hypervtechnics Isn't the goal is to make things easier for the user, cuz that isn't making it easier when having to remember imo

    @gitpush The fact that they made packaging (also NuGet Feed) a feature which needs a separate license is bothering me way more...

    EDIT: 6 icons. You won't bat an eye anymore in 1 or 2 weeks...

    @hypervtechnics lool They just can't get things right all the way.

    The only three things I've seen them done right:

    1. Visual Studio (prior to 2017 version cuz that one sucks)

    2. VS Code

    3. Office

    @gitpush I think the products themselves are quite useful despite they don't work sometimes the way we want. Then of course one can get angry because most of the time we even pay for it. But the meta stuff like is the negative stuff in my eyes: Why needs the calculator app a privacy policy? It's a fucking calculator app...

    @hypervtechnics Exactly XD XD XD

    Next in line, Notepad needs to prove you are not a robot XD

    @gitpush 2017 is the best VS ever, performance wise and UI wise.

    Office is one of the shittiest tools commonly used.

    @Codex404 loool I like how each of us had a different experience with it, for me VS 2017 freeze and crash sometimes, while VS 2015 down until 2010 never gave me issues lol

    As for Office, not sure why you hate it, never had issues with it
