Default Windows Mail UI - Consistency with rest of Vista


Better get WM the File Explorer toolbars at least, if not a big navigation
bar too like WMP, Callendar, etc. do

I don't want mail looking like Windows Media Player 11 or Photo Gallery or
Calendar. Its just not the right application for that layout and
significance would not be there. I notice you just suggested consistency,
but could you give me additional reasons why this layout would be
advantageous to Windows Mail, how it would provide better navigation or make
the Windows Mail experience better for the end user?

It would be quite cool, but what would be the reason behind quite cool, what
productive functionality is it providing? Developers don't create these
things at the snap of a finger. It takes a good amount of thought process,
engineering and testing before you can at least bring real code into play.
At least apply some of that thought process to your suggestion before you
hand it to them.

Buenas noches: *Andre Da Costa [Extended64]* escribió:


At least I'd love buttons for back and forth, so that I can switch to
another folder and use the back button to return to the previous one.
Don't know if such are in Calendar, though. ;-)

No they are not, but they are in Windows Media Player. For persons who have
multiple inboxes, subscribe to numerous newsgroups, WMPs navigation still
would not functional in Windows Mail.

Can anyone give a satisfactory answer to that regarding ANY major new UI
feature Vista has brought so far ?

They do at the thud of an Apple falling to the ground though.

which is usually filled with voices chanting Mac OS ~ Mac OS ~ Make an OS
like MAC OS!

after scraping at least 50% of the initial design goals.


We would love to, if it did not feel futile after all too many put-offs
containing phrases like "feature complete" and "final, expected behavior."


These succinct snips are just meant to be heads-ups for pointing that
thought process of theirs in the general direction.. no way are we going to
the effort of drawing elaborate drafts if they won't be taken into much
consideration.

but coming to the issue at hand, surely at least the toolbars in Windows
Mail could do with a makeover like those in Windows Explorer? along with a
breadcrumb Address Bar.

Breadcrumb toolbar? You are just saying things that you think will look good
but you are not providing any reasoning behind it.
