comment What are the “spinning dots” in Windows supposed to represent, and why do they stop?
So why not just design one that looks okay looped, like everyone else? It really just looks like a bug that was never fixed for some reason.

See my edit. I agree, it is weird.

Well, it's slightly more than 2 revolutions because the dots start at about 4 o'clock. It seems like they intended them to flow on from the previous loop. And when the loop ends, if you look at the Windows one (not the one above) you can see that the last frame of animation for each dot shows it cut in half. It looks completely wrong.

If you look carefully, the dots start at about 4 o'clock. They go around twice and then disappear at the 6 o'clock position. Then the animation starts again. When I first saw it I assumed it was a bug.

comment Why are most game controllers left handed?
Interesting point, but why then do I and everyone I know use the right hand for movement when given a classic style joystick? When given a perfectly symmetrical controller the natural thing seems to be to use the right hand.

comment Why are most game controllers left handed?
I find the same thing, I can't respond as quickly or as accurately with my left hand. I play better with my right hand on controls. Button pressing doesn't require much dexterity and is rhythmic, so much more suited to left handed operation.

comment Why are most game controllers left handed?
I find it easier to do complex directional movements with my primary hand, e.g. the "HCF" required for a fireball in Street Fighter. I mostly play shooters and find my right hand lets me dodge bullets much more precisely. So what you are saying is that I am in a minority of gamers who prefers direction control with their primary hand.
