I know there's a great number of people out there that does not like the overall look of the WP7 UI. With this poll I wanna know how many people doesn't like the WP7 look.

I will vote for "SIMPLE" ...

Yeah, it is not ugly, because I like it.

And it is not beautiful, because ... it is not.

But, it is simple and clean.

i voted for beautiful, because there is not an "OK" option.
its not ugly, but not perfect, thats why they should add the possibility for custom UI's.
lets hope that our opinions on this poll reach microsoft..

Seriously, those black-white or white-black or black-blue and similar are very well working, but not eyecandy as I like (I was editing 4 hours icons in Manila rather than using stock gray ones!)

Some nice orange and (TMobile branded WP7 phone? PINK! ) other colors would be better and IMHO better readable than that blue.

WM6.5.x or more than that the abandoned photon, rebuilt with silverlight and XNA support would have been my best preference.
Not the present W(I)Phone.

HTC has very gorgeous design. They really invested a lot of time making different animations, especially weather.

rosoft on the other hand choose very different approach
MAKING OS LOOK UNFINISHED. I GOT A FEELING THAT DESIGNERS COULDNT CHANGE THE FONT TO FIT THE SCREEN
they also didn't capitalize any words like the month or the day

In my opinion the core of the OS looks better; menus, etc. But the App menu and Home screen looks ugly.

HTC made WM look a lot better with sense but It'll be no longer needed. I like the new UI and won't mind throwing my sense away to get it. Long as I can see the weather, time, missed calls, and messages all at the same time it's a win for me.

Same here. In addition, 2K files in LUA (), without APIs, no hooks or placeholders for anything third-party/additional isn't the right way to do homescreen UI. I loved to use Sense because it was better than anything available but it sucked in more than one way.

Windows Phone 7 is the most stupid system I have ever seen !
Is Microsoft is so stupid ? I wonder !

-No Support for any devices before !

-No Multitasking ! after multitasking was the mark of Microsoft !

-No Copy... Cut... Paste ! What more ? maybe no writing on the future !

-No UI Customization from companies ! They want you to stuck on the stupid UI which it doesn't show the full name of menu ! for God sake tell me what is the beauty of menu you can't see the full name of it ? what a Smart !

The World is going to forward and Microsoft is going to dark ages !
