So MS does all usability testing after they release the OS?

It's not just MS, I have to say. Making shutdown hard to get to may have been a particularly boneheaded move, but it honestly seems like desktop UI design has gone to hell across the board the last couple of years. OS X, Gnome, KDE ... I can't think of a single major environment that isn't substantially worse than it used to be.

XFCE is still fine. Cinnamon and MATE are also great. It's not THAT bad.

A lot of people are experimenting because of the rise of mobile devices. The situation will stabilize eventually when people are more experienced with making desktop interfaces that are adapted to the desktop, but familiar to mobile users.
