"Desktop applications should not attempt to mimic mobile phone apps that were designed to be used by touch — 'hamburger menus' may be a suitable compromise for crammed mobile phones but not for today’s desktop systems with Full HD or 4K screens."

omg this! Stop "improving" my desktop interfaces with these dumb monstrosities.

@unicornfarts My favorite are the "switches", that make sense on a touchscreen UI, because you physically slide the switch from one position to the other position. With a mouse, you just click on it, so it's just a less visually satisfying checkbox. No reason at all to use these things.
