The best feature of Windows 11 big redesign is the new rounded corners the interface sports, or that’s the result of a recent vote.

The Twitter account for the Windows Dev Center held the poll for users to select between various UI upgrades which were pitted against each other in a series of votes. The winner progressed to the next round, and the eventual final – Officially, the Winning UI Upgrade was Microsoft’s “Rounded Corners” knocking out it’s a competitor “Revamped snap controls” which allow for easier and more convenient multitasking of apps. It was a close run, but “Rounded corners” came out on top with a 54% share of the vote.

On its way through to the final, Microsoft’s “Rounded Corners” dispatched refreshed icons in the first round, and easily dispensed with the new – and definitely admired – background art in the semi-final (securing 75% of the vote in the latter case). On the other side of the bracket, “Snap controls” beat widgets in the first round and then outdid pinned apps to advance to the final.

“Rounded Corners” of windows, dialogue boxes and menus might seem a rather superficial winner of the competition to find the best interface change in Windows 11 and of course, “Snap Controls” are a far more practical UI refinement, and pretty niftily implemented in Windows 11 as we’ve seen…However “Rounded Corners” does have a fairly big effect on the overall appearance of the operating system. We personally think that it’s one of those changes that sounds small, but actually has a bigger impact than imagined on making Windows look like a more modern OS overall (or indeed more Mac-like).

So, it’s not surprising, then, that the final vote was a pretty close-run thing, and we also have to remember that far from everybody snaps apps into place on their desktop, too.

    After all said and done I still prefer the Windows XP interface. I wish we could get an option to choose an interface that is if I understand it right.
