You won't argue a major overhaul has long been overdue, will you? Especially given how many features have been introduced lately. And you somehow need to pack all that into a sleek user interface that neither distracts, nor makes you feel dizzy at the sight of overwhelmingly crammed toolbars. This is how all those popovers have taken over though I too think that move is rather controversial and counterproductive to boot though I see the reasoning and logic that back the UI/UX choices they've made. All in all, there's no accounting for taste after all. Same goes for colors - I for one have made myself pretty comfortable with the monochromatic UI though don't mind colors so long as they don't distract me too much.. Blender 2.80 is under development. We do not recommend using Beta versions in production, there are still many bugs and data loss is not likely but still possible. Always backup your files.
