Why hasn't camelCase or PascalCase simply taken over the world by now? What is wrong with people?
Why would some dev who types with two fingers want to reach up there for a dash anyways?
What is wrong with people?
I hope you are serious. And I hope you are saying that because you are a staunch supporter of PascalCase. If you are one of those Hungarian Notation people, we will have to remove your dev card.
Back in the day Hungarian would fly, but now, we kick you off of CP for that.
I first saw the damn things on Ubuntu desktop, now they seem to be in Edge (which is the default PDF viewer on my system, going to change that)
We hates pop out scrollbars! They require extra precision to just get the damn thing to pop out, then extra precision not to overshoot and minimize the damn scrollbar when scrolling.
What absolute moron thought that saving .01% of screen real estate would be worth the coordination hassle of this totally unusable feature?
Oh wait. It was an Ubuntu/Linux developer to start with, I'm sure. That explains a lot, as these people seem to have it as their mission to make things obtuse, complicated, and over-designed while at the same time totally under-designing usability.
Could not agree more! I cuss them every day. It does not help that my right hand has a small problem with 'essential tremors' (why any doctor thought they should be 'essential' is beyond me).
A human being should be able to change a diaper, plan an invasion, butcher a hog, navigate a ship, design a building, write a sonnet, balance accounts, build a wall, set a bone, comfort the dying, take orders, give orders, cooperate, act alone, solve equations, analyze a new problem, pitch manure, program a computer, cook a tasty meal, fight efficiently, die gallantly.

Their version of rolling back mistakes is saying "oops", and supending pushing the offending update.

Until they roll out the next update, which will probably be even worse
If something has a solution... Why do we have to worry about?. If it has no solution... For what reason do we have to worry about?
Help me to understand what I'm saying, and I'll explain it better to you
Rating helpful answers is nice, but saying thanks can be even nicer.
I love this rant, because I hate those stupid pop out scroll bars too.
There is no reason for them.
I have a Mac Mini I remote to and I saw them on MacOS first, is that where they originated? It would make sense that Maconians thought they were a good idea, since Jobs loved 1-button mouses-meeses to pieces.
I believe in simplifying things, but scroll bars that hide themselves DOES NOT SIMPLIFY anything.
Oops, I'm shouting.
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.
