Preach it, brother/sister!

When I was first starting with WPF, I heard about Expression Blend. I downloaded and installed it. The app was completely unusable. Monochrome icons and gray text on a darker gray background. I couldn't see anything in the app. Switching themes did no good, as they all had the same low contrast "oh, don't have anything distract from the work" design. I complained on Microsoft Connect about the app's usability. They closed and deleted my issue immediately with no response.

And I only used the phrase "age-ist pricks" once.
Software Zen: delete this;
