Windows 10? Try 'Windows 10 years ago,' sniffs Google's head of design

Technically Incorrect offers a slightly twisted take on the tech that's taken over our lives.
If you need to put together a research group to study myopia, get 10 designers in a room.
Each will have a definite view of everybody else's work. Each will have a definite view that his or her own work is very different. No one will agree.
It's cheering, therefore, but not surprising that Google's vice president of design, Matias Duarte, has expressed his indifference toward Windows 10, which has now been widely available for three months.
Taking to Twitter rather than Google+ on Monday, Duarte began his review
of Microsoft's latest software with this: "I just setup a Surface 4 & Windows 10 -- not sure why I was excited to try a new thing, it's basically XP with a flat design skin. #FutureNot."
