    VS 2012's Dark Theme looks better than the light version in my opinion.

    I probably won't go on more about VS 2012 in this thread though. Someone should make a thread dedicated to the next VS.

    It looks.... so boring. So dull. There's no color at all.

    Let me try my copy (dev preview with apps)

    Edited:

    Works on my end. Might need to hash your iso's and compare them with the hash's from microsoft
    Yeah the hash is different but I don't understand, I've redownloaded about 7 times from all 3 distros and none of em work.

    Edit: Going to try to download it in IE and see what happens.

    Edit: Nope. Hash is still different.

    I actually prefer the light (or light gray) version of vs 2012.

    Though would prefer it if the code window was also a bit more muted as opposed to harsh white.

    I am not sure if you are aware of this, but .webm videos are already here, and that is more than enough for a decent replacement of flash VIDEOS. But flash in general has its purposes far beyond handling videos. I dont know where you got the idea that HTML5 is not already here, but, it is; just not massively being used yet, and is still being developed, but that doesn't mean it is not already being deployed on websites, and even Google has already switched youtube beta over to handling HTML5 videos.
    Considering HTML5 is scheduled to be completely finalized in 2023 or something equally ridiculous, it has nothing to do with people not knowing that 'HTML5 is done' but rather that it's not anywhere close to being done at all and that you are just wrong. Things could change, and HTML5 just can't replace Flash yet for some things.
    I find it sad they produce such under-powered netbooks that can hardly handle a modern OS. Pathetic.
    Are you really going to blame netbook manufacturers because Linux typically runs better than Windows? Those netbooks definitely can handle a modern OS like Linux, it's the other ones they have trouble with...

    Considering I wrote it, verified it, then clicked "Post Quick Reply"... I'd say that statement is accurate.

    Just because a netbook can't run Windows 7 Ultimate doesn't mean it's underpowered. If Windows is our baseline for resource consumption on netbooks, we're fucked.

    Actually metro is probably a better looking UI than what they've done in ages. And it looks better than Aero and by far than Luna.

    If you have a strong love for overblotty visual themes then be free to say so, but there's no reason to say that metro looks crap. Because you feel it needs at least a few lens flares.

    I downloaded a copy from another source as a RAR and this copy works great.

    I am also confident that my hard drive and ram is fine. Either way I got it working, thanks nonetheless.

    Metro is one of the best UI designs ever. They just need to make the desktop environment use Metro themes (instead of Apple wannabe glass deviant art reject bs) and Windows would have the best GUI ever.

    But MS always fails to be consistent.

    Ah I think I know what my problem with the dark theme vs2012 is now looking at it closely.

    It's the fact that they use the same icons across both themes. The ones on the light theme also have the border but it fades better into the background making them look at lot more sleek.

    The dark theme icons, instead of being inverted have that border which makes them look really really fat. it also kinda makes the icon details mess up.

    Contrary to popular belief, I like Aero in Windows 7/8. At least Aero looks modern, and it's pretty customizable with color choices, transparency, and color saturation.

    What I was trying to say with my statement was that Windows 7 might RUN on a netbook with those horrid specs, but it won't run very quickly, and forget about doing any complicated tasks with any multitasking. Just loading up Photoshop on a 1GB netbook like the one I have is just impractical.

    It was a gift. I photoshop daily. but it's a bitch with only 1GB of ram, and I'll NEVER go back to XP. I only keep XP around for fixing shit PCs of other people.

    It's made to spot bottlenecks and such, and even if it does, you can look at the other scores. Even then, it's made for fairly computer illiterate people, so if it works for them, it's fine.

    Well yeah it does, especially for games etc. If you had a really fast graphics card but you've got a shit CPU, it doesn't make it somewhere in the middle in terms of performance, it'd be only limited by the processor.

    It's also a good way to explain to people how to upgrade their computer, since changing the worst component would effect the score the most.

    Well, if you think about it, it's not that stupid. If you're running a task which utilizes ALL sytem resources, your bottleneck is going to decide how fast you're going. Of course that's not representative of real-life applications, but that would be biased as well.

    Edited:

    Go away.
