A Fresh Look for MSDN

A Fresh Look for MSDN

  • Comments 4

With the business launch of Windows Vista today, MSDN launched a fresh look for the Windows Vista developer center.

I'd like to draw your attention to the top part of the page and solicit your feedback on the new navigation features at the top of the page. This is part of some ongoing work MSDN is doing to enrich the user experience of the site.

The content that appears on each tab is not 100% complete. We're also working on changes to the content that appears on each page associated with a tab. Today, you'll find simple bulleted-lists of information.

What do you think? Do the tabs align with what you use MSDN to do?

  • Great post! Love the new design!

  • It takes around 30% of the page from first pixel on top to the first pixel where actual content starts. It would be good if you provide a button under the "Ribbon" that minimizes everything (even the profile, legal... stuff at the bottom part of the page) except content. This allows one to concentrate on the content.

    Thanks

  • I really don't like how wide the site in general is.  I find that most, if not all, of Microsoft's Vista sites (and the new Office Online) all assume I'm running a maximized browser at 1024x768+.  I do have plenty of screen real estate (dual monitors, each at 1280x1024), but I prefer to run a non-maximized browser.

    This ends up with lots of left-right scrolling (not good), or maximizing my browser (which I shouldn't have to).  Can the site be made to scale horizontally in a better fashion?
