  • The metro look is hideous, I have better things to do with my time than to spend hours trying to get the vs2010 look back using the theme editor. If I didn't want to use MVC4 and the JavaScript improvements, I'd not switch to 2012.

    BTW I also detest the changes to the TFS interface. The speed improvements are nice the funky views are not.

    Have a nice day!

    "Team Explorer is a big step backwards in usability.  I find myself switching back to 2010 to check-in.  Also, the Test Explorer has been rendered useless for me due to the lack of grouping options (specifically, group by project).  Please provide some improvements in SP1!"

    Second that motion.

  • Installed - looked in disbelief - uninstalled. I have never in my 25 year career of software development seen such a huge leap backwards.

  • Worst ... UI ... ever!

  • Its UI is very ugly. Will it's theme upgrade soon?

  • This VS2012 UI is ugly, hard on the eyes, and just terrible to work with!

  • very bad
