Whatever happened to the good old progress bar?
Does anyone else miss the progress bar that actually shows how close something is to being finished?
I really don't like the one that behaves like an old Nintendo game. It gets to the end only to come out the other side again. What's the purpose?
I agree with you on this one Anselome. The new progress bar in most of Microsoft's newer products leaves you wandering just how long will it be until "it's done". The only thing it does tell you is that something is happening (hopefully), and you'll just have to wait for a minute which usually turns out to be forever. This is not only rude, but it lacks functional purpose as it says nothing about the "real" progress of the activity it is intended to measure.
I suspect that there is no way to overwrite this without modifying some of the core objects of the operating system with your own version. I'm sure somebody out there might know how to do this, but it's a bit beyond my scope of abilities.
Perhaps some day, the folks at Microsoft will wise up and stop trying to mimic other operating systems, and just stick to the tried and true practices that really work.
I'm not sure who's idea this was, but it was a dumb one. What really gets me is that they haven't corrected it. It's been in there since Vista. Does Microsoft really not see how dumb this is? Makes me wonder if they even use Windows themselves.
