I'm told that after I got my wisdom teeth out, I did a "David after dentist" impression and then spat blood everywhere. I don't remember that bit, though I do remember still being awake enough to go to the bathroom after my third hit of whatever (oral) anaesthetic/amnesia-inducer they gave me and remarking on my way back that the walls seemed to be melting.
The next day I played StarCraft for a while and seemed to do okay. I guess if I'd had to code, I could have done so.
There it is. The standard Democrat blame-game. Christ, you people just never take any kind of responsibility whatsoever. Always someone else's fault.
Do you have an actual argument, with evidence, that can disprove his point? As it stands, you're just engaging in more partisan rhetoric yourself, which given that partisan rhetoric is what you're quoting as a bad thing seems a little hypocritical...
I'm using the Express edition, which means that I have a fraction of the available features and the ones that I do have are gimped.
With that said, the interface SUCKS! I have an 8-core processor, 16 GB of RAM and an AMD 7870. While this is a moderate to high end system, I have seen very nice GUIs rendered quickly on much lower end systems. Why, in the name of God, did they decide that we all want to take a giant leap back and do a flat, monochrome interface?! I have a very hard time just trying to find GUI elements on screen. Windows 3.1 GUI was better than this!
Try the dark theme, if you haven't already. It's much easier on the eyes.
The Express edition cannot use themes, although I was able to find a hack to make it work.
Yes, it can. I was able to switch into the dark theme without any hacks.
Go to Tools->Options, then in the drop-down on the left hand side select Environment->General. Then, under the "visual experience" pane, there should be a drop-down labelled "color theme" which lets you switch between "Dark" and "Light."
