What is that on my taskbar?


Today, I noticed Microsoft updated the Windows Store icon, to something more colorful!

Here is a screenshot!

    Yep. It's only 1703 AND 1709 now, at the least.

    I have a 1709 machine that still sports the old Store name and icon. What's up with that?

    Actually, yeah ... I noticed that too. I could have sworn Paul was talking about it recently that it would be updated to this new icon soon.

    So flat design is out and colour is back. It looks out of place, and adds to the confused UI design style.

      You should have learned decades ago there's no such thing as a long-term MSFT design style. Everything becomes dated and cheesy within 3 years. OTOH, that means confusion is a repeating theme.

      If you've ever seen the movie The Nightmare before Christmas, MSFT figuring out UI design is a lot like Jack Skellington trying to figure out Christmas.
