In my observation, over the years school has been deliberately made more fun.
Don't worry too much about learning unpleasant things - and watch some movies - every week - and learn from them . . .
The kids are happy because, more and more it's becoming a hang-out with buddies and less and less a place where you need to be quite and learn things you will need some day even though it doesn't seem like it now and you really don't want to.
When I worked in a small company the management knew what I was working on, so no problem, Bigger company sent an Email with details, Bigger company we start using the JD Edwards award winning software. I want to know if had any rivals for the awards, if they weren't as good... I know nothing about time sheet software but I could write a better interface, enter something wrong and bang (bounds checking? that would be a no!). The back end appears to written by someone who knows enough about Oracle to know if you port an SQL database to Oracle you don't have to Micro$oft...give me a break!
It's because companies above a certain size require software that (claims to be) extensible, flexible, and expandable, and which is supported by a company that has a huge reserves, so will not collapse and leave them in the lurch -- these days, any supplier company less than fifteen years old need not apply.
Unfortunately, that leaves only a few players, which have taken so much control of the demographic that they pay little heed to users' needs or complaints -- not to mention that their claims of extensibility, flexibility, and expandability are three parts fiction, and hideously expensive, as they mostly require "consultants" from the suppliers be embedded in the customers' companies for months at extremely high rates.
So we're stuck with arrogant, overly powerful suppliers, who make everything work to their advantage, not their customers'.
I wanna be a eunuchs developer! Pass me a bread knife!
I concur. Fixing the icons was important because the icons they had changed to were crap, flat an indistinguishable from one another on anything less than a 2k+ monitor. However, fixing them was only important because they already wasted a load of resources creating replacements for the perfect good ones they had before. So they shouldn't have changed them, then they wouldn't have had to waste even more time and resources (not just theirs but everyone's) fixing them.
Just revert to the old ones (not the last lot but the ones that came with Windows 7) and get on with fixing stuff that is actually broken and we'll call it quits.
- I would love to change the world, but they won’t give me the source code.
Google updated their icons recently too in a lot of their products. Why don't people complain about that? It's not as if Microsoft ONLY changed their icons and didn't fix any bugs. Microsoft hate gets boring.

Everyone is born right handed. Only the strongest overcome it.

Oh, yes. Microsoft hate. That's what it is. sure. I do hate the company that's kept me in cat food for 27 years (and counting). I just keep forgetting to call it Micro$oft.
The biggest part of the problem is that the sites monitoring Microsoft (i.e. most of my news) - as well as Microsoft themselves - feel the need to create an article every time a single product changes it's icon. There were a few articles when Google did their Material Design switch, but very few.
I also don't understand why people think they should be immune to ribbing when they breathlessly write: "
Fluent Design is a collective, open design system that ensures people, teams, and their products have the fundamental components and processes to build coherent experiences across platforms.
Sorry, grumpy today, and you poked a nerve (as I guess I did for you).
