A couple of days ago I was away from home but I wanted to fetch a bunch of files from my server. I had ssh access so I quickly installed vsftp, a simple FTP server for Ubuntu Lucid. I would’ve used WinSCP and sftp but I wanted to try something new. What’s that, new?
I wasn’t expecting the Windows 7 FTP access manager to be down right ancient. It looks like it crawled out of Windows 2000. So what, ten years after the initial release of New Technology, we’re still using the same icons?
No, it’s not a big deal but I wanted to mention it because it’s out-of-place. And if something as subtle as the icons are out of date, what does that say about the code that powers these features? It could be just as old if not older. At least Windows realized it couldn’t log in with the first credentials I supplied.
