Agreed, I much prefer the old one, and from what I've read so far, so does almost everyone who is using codeplex actively :P (if it wasn't for the active use of team explorer by most of the dev team, I would suggest moving to a different site unless they fix this mess, but because most of the team does, that isn't a valid option. (also a few other reasons why it's not :P))

What are you saying? It looks fine on my toaster.

Ahh fine, I'll have a look at it on my dishwasher in the morning.

What's wrong with it? I really do like it. Is there some atrocious thing I've missed?

Try viewing the site at any horizontal resolution lower than 1200 pixels, you'll see the issue. Most of the buttons for things are way out of scale. It looks decent when your looking at the site at 1600x1200 pixels, but much smaller than that and you start to see the issues.

It looks great on my muchas gicantico screen (1920 x 1080), as well as my 1024 x 768, but I can now se how this could cause outrage. Its really too bad for people with smaller screens or awkward resolutions, as you said.

Developer

I don't like it because

  1. Ugly colours
  2. Doesn't look good on 1366x768, buttons are way too big
  3. Only device the things are in portion on is my table, and i can't code on that

:-(

Strange how taste differs... I like the old CP better as well, but I see nothing wrong here...

It's clean and out of your way, easy to use, and low on bandwidth. And it ties in to Microsoft's new style (www.microsoft.com)

Can't please everybody I suppose

Nope. I'd be happier if they changed the colours though haha

The old version was low bandwidth as well :P
