I work helpdesk and I decided to take some VMware training – just the very first “install, configure, manage” class – very low-level.
This is the most time that I’ve ever really spent at once in vSphere and I’m *astounded* about how bad the user interface for vSphere is.
like…almost every object that you can select in the left-most panel (VMs, resource groups, hosts, etc) will give you a bunch of buttons on the top in the middle panel. Fine. That makes sense.
But then there’s some things that on one type of object that will bring up a wizard, where other things it will redirect the middle panel. (for example “settings” on a host, I think, brings up the panel, while a similar option on a VM will bring up another window, and on a third type will bring up a wizard).
Do they just not hire UI designers, or what?
