Chapter 13. Customizing the Windows Vista Interface

In This Chapter

Microsoft spent countless hours and untold millions of dollars testing and retesting the Windows Vista user interface (UI) in its usability labs. It’s important, however, to remember that Windows Vista is an operating system designed for the masses. With an installed base running in the hundreds of millions, it’s only natural that the Windows UI would incorporate lots of lowest-common-denominator thinking. So, in the end, you have an interface that most people find easy to use most of the time; an interface that skews toward accommodating neophytes and the newly digital; an interface designed for a typical computer user, whoever the heck that is.
