What's the with the current look of SnagIt?

Even though the inhabitants of Planet Earth have resoundingly voted they don't like the Windows 8 Metro look, software vendors seem to be infatuated with it. Garish colors, flat surfaces...hmmm, how much did it cost TechSmith to change the UI?

It provides no additional value to users. None.

Eventually this look will seem very dated and then you'll change it, but of course that will be another upgrade cycle and few more dollars out of my pocket to relieve me of my visual misery.

its not metro its modern design and it just works on software UI. Its not juts a fad in fact has been around for several years and now comes in different flavours and waves. Lo0k at the Photoshop latest november update.

and its so predictable people are redundant to change.  Well its not everyone working to everything. The Ui design team for techsmith job is to work on exactly these kind of changes. Let the professional designers to their work.

I am not resistant to change (I assume that's what you meant). If I were, I'd be running DOS and writing COBOL. This is a common (and wrong) argument used against anybody who dislikes this UI.

Change can be good, and change can be bad.

so what is that if not a simply personal statement. Like I said modern Ui design has proven worthy  and its here to stay . Even companies like Autodesk that have products with impressive  UI started to revamp their products acording to this (Check Maya 2016 for ex.) even thats a massive undertaking.
