Both Microsoft and Apple have been moving in that direction. One can just look at the new OS like windows 8 and Mac OS X Yosemite coming out this year in the fall. All these years we have been moving away from windows 3.1 look to more contrast ,color and depth and dreaming of virtual reality. All these new HD TV and monitors and ultra HD !!! all to move back to windows 3.1 look of very little contrast ,color and depth of almost monochrome monitor!! Why? What is this new flat OS that big trend in windows 8 and now Mac OS X Yosemite and new iOS for iPad and iPhone copying windows phone. Even the new Microsoft office is copying this flat design and even some web sites too!!! Why this big trend when all these years we have been moving away from windows 3.1 with little contrast ,color and depth.
