Why is Visual Studio 2012 SHOUTING AT ME

There is a fairly serious design flaw in the Visual Studio 2012.

The menus are all in capital letters. This seriously reduces the readability.

I understand that someone is trying to be consistent with the Windows 8 Phone interface, but remember we are not writing software on a phone.

There is a registry hack that can fix this easily (http://stackoverflow.com/questions/10859173/how-to-disable-all-caps-menu-titles-in-visual-studio-2012-rc) but really this should be a config option.

It’s even worse in Office 2013 the caps need to be fixed on a menu by  menu basis (edit the name and add a space at the end).
