Their whole design philosophy seems to have become "make things harder and slower to do, as long as it meets some idiot's concept of coolness".

Look at how much immediate, one-click functionality was lost, when some idiot decided that making scrollbars (annoyingly!) disappear would be cool, and how they made editing table properties an endless grind, because another idiot thought that pop-up lollipops were a cooler way to add rows and columns than using right-click options (they later restored the right-click options, because almost everyone hated and disabled the lollipops, but all the other functionality was still broken).

I blame wikipedia, for being such a flighty and inaccurate source of information.  The X in UX is for experience, not exasperate.
I wanna be a eunuchs developer! Pass me a bread knife!
