99% of all submission look the same. There is isn't enough of a difference.

You can't really change the color of the font (not that I know of). When you have the Aero glass theme selected, the text is white. When it's Aero basic, like the one you're using, the text is black.

Found myself with some free time unexpectedly and decided to go ahead and re-install Windows 8.

Desktop app tiles look terrible. The current mishmash of desktop/metro really doesn't work well.

Have to agree with that one.. for the "classic" applications they should have laid the tiles out in the same format.. larger icon, text underneath, etc.. still wouldn't give any of the live info but at least it would look more consistent.

Apparently, that's been fixed.

Not a huge fan of the "Metro" style to be honest. I'm seriously considering holding onto my Windows 7 install, and wait for the next one after Windows 8 instead.

What i'd like to see for "non-Metro" apps, is an OPTION to allow the icons to be JUST an icon, and no text visible unless you hover the cursor over the icon.

They have addressed that (as seen in some leaked screenshots).

I couldn't find those. Would you mind providing some links?

The article is here. And here's the image:

It's a considerable improvement from the current appearance.

Wow it looks like a theme to you? Its just raw Windows 8 with Greyish aero color , without transparency , taskbar on top , and chrome with grey theme. If you really want a theme , here it is : http://zeusosx.deviantart.com/art/ZEUS-os-X-world-for-windows-8-Realease-Preview-312730083

At least now you can enjoy your wallpaper more since, at least for me and some others, you won't have to pin icons to the desktop. I'm really thinking I'll finally go multimonitor with Win8 but now the question is should I opt for the new monitor to be touch screen as well? If so it'd be the one that always shows the start screen while I keep doing what i'm doing on the desktop like I have been. Simple glance to the left to see the live tiles and if I have to do anything I can just quickly reach up to hit the tile and not have to drag the mouse all the way over.

for me i don't like having desktop apps on metro so my setup desktop apps on desktop taskbar and metro apps on startscreen :)

if you have a monitor without touch i'd say go for touch screen monitor in that way you will enjoy both worlds more

im going to do the same

That's what I'm thinking as well, right now on Win7 I have my most used apps pinned to the taskbar, which would be the same thing I do for Win8. Some stuff I don't use often are pinned on the desktop though but those can be pinned to the start screen (shortcuts to games etc).
