Poll: The UI.. Two steps forward "ONE" Step back? (78 votes)

Love it 9%
Hate it 17%
Bring back NXE 3%
Just needs work 33%
PS4 Got it right 28%
Im a BETA tester 10%

Reading this over on EDGE i couldn't help but agree with it all, imo nothing really works as it should it all feels broken or unfinished and a major step back from the 360. I don't want to get into massive flame wars about the console just a general opinion of if you like it or not

So far as I'm concerned, every Xbox interface since the Blades has been lousy at best.

I think it does a lot of new stuff in really awesome ways, and it also does a lot of old stuff in really terrible ways.

I kind of trust MS to improve it though, the 360 dashboard saw constant major upgrades, I think we'll see faster iteration with the One and a lot of the things that are really annoying right now will get resolved.

I think it's great. Just don't like that if opens a new window for answering messages etc. I would prefer an overlay window directly with the keyboard layout and then back to the game or whatever you are doing.

It's overly complicated and messy for something that should be very simple. The whole multi-tasking thing with a console is just stupid, much like multi-tasking with a Roku; it's worthless functionality that only impedes the performance of the OS. Sony got it right, simple is better.

It has grow on me:

- Visually I like it

- I like to play arround with tile positions

- Good multi tasking-capabilities

In the other hand: they need serious work with Achievements and Parties, like serious work.

From what I've seen(It's not out here until Q4 2014) it really reminds me of the tvs in the movie 'Idiocracy'. That isn't a good sign at all.('Ow! My Balls' only on Xbone coming Q4 2016)
