    It seems to be the latest trend: I hate it too.

    I have noticed that as the screen gets bigger, it becomes more of a problem. It is definitely not the UI for a 17"+ screen.

    That top picture is fine, since that currently empty inbox will usually be filled with emails, and that big space on the right is where you'll read them, and/or reply.

    That bottom shot is a good example of wasted space, though.

    This is exactly my issue with Yosemite. That and it's ridiculously buggy and gives me headaches to use. I hope this won't be the case for Windows 10 since I really like Windows 8.x.

    One could argue that you wouldn't have these windows maximised normally, thus less space being used. We have no idea how big the user's screen is.
