Some thoughts on the Metro UI in Visual Studio 2012

The Metro UI in the Visual Studio 2012 is horrible  The icons and graphics make navigating a solution nearly impossible. The Light Theme and Dark Theme are equally unreadable. The geniuses that came up with this UI concept should be tarred and feathered. Even with the improvements in search and the solution explorer I still find myself being less productive because I have to study each file to make sure that’s what I want to work with. Lets not even start on the ALL CAPS MENU, really?

I appreciate the IDE improvements but how about a choice? Dear Microsoft, Metro doesn’t work for everything.
