The current versions of software applications that have been around for years (like CCleaner, for example) all look worse than a few years ago, now that they have followed the Windows 8 esthetics trend. That's my humble opinion, anyway.


I think of it more like this...

I saw it could be resized, and then I was :) , but then I actually tried to resize it, and realized it can only get bigger, not smaller, and then I was :( .

Really I only need the momentary RMS, A-weighted or C-weighted. It would be nice if I could make the rest go away, or just make the box smaller in general.

Also the fonts are all blurry, and their blurriness changes as the window is resized, with some words becoming blurry ("WEIGHT", "WINDOW") while others ("FILTER", "RMS") become in focus:

It's not ugly, though. Putting fake physical knobs on an LCD screen is ugly.
