After Microsoft reveals the official name of Project NEON, we discuss the specifics of how “Microsoft Fluent Design System” makes us feel. While we discuss our initial thoughts on Fluent, we also look at specific examples of it already seen in several core apps available on Windows 10 Insider Fast Ring.
