Hello again! So this installation of bad interface practices is one that has bugged me for quite a while. It is something that many of are so used to that we don’t question it. It is the START menu in most flavors of the Microsoft Windows operating system.

Here is what annoys me about it. When a user wants to shut down their machine, when they want to stop using the machine… they have to hit a button labeled START! It seems intuitive only because we’ve been forced to do it for so long.

Now, I’ll make this rant a short one because as you can see here, with Windows 7 and the current, yet hardly used Windows Vista, they have done away with it… FINALLY!
