Actually, I think apple did this first, in their browser.

They were added to microsoft word ages ago, and are completely universally reviled -- as in, not one person who is not employed by ms wanted them or likes them. They are 100% hated.

What is worse is that this "wonderful new feature" broke the split-view button, at the top of the srroll bar (it now takes two clicks to split the view -- in half, so you then have to grab the split bar and move it), and destroyed the excellent navigation options at the bottom of the scroll bar.

In earlier versions of winio, there was an option to disable the bars' disappearing act (without restoring any lost functionality), but they removed that option -- and even the registry hack doesn't block it, any more.

It's unusual to see a developer complain abut such things, though, because ms devs are only ***ing up the bread-and-butter tools of non-devs.

It's a "When they came for excel, we did nothing" thing.

But they'll be coming after VS, soon enough.  Just wait and see how badly they can **** up the bread-and-butter development tool.
I wanna be a eunuchs developer! Pass me a bread knife!
