The fact that they needed this feedback is actually the most troubling thing here.

Yes, I’m linking to myself. I’m just still so confused. How is this seriously what Microsoft is going to release in 2012?
“Invert selection” is a default option that’s shown.
It’s not even that this is extremely cluttered, it’s just everything about it. It has to be one of the worst UIs I’ve ever seen. Period.
If Microsoft is showing this off as a trick to then “wow” everyone at their actual Windows 8 unveiling, then good on them. Otherwise, I’m left with one of two thoughts:
1) I’m an idiot and have no idea what customers want.
2) Microsoft is in serious trouble.
This is genuinely Microsoft’s idea of a “streamlined”, “optimized” UI for Windows Explorer. They were so proud of it they wrote a blog post about it.
Microsoft UI has officially entered the realm of self-parody.
Oh. My. God.
