Flaunt Your Windows 8 Screenshots here

415 posts in this topic

Other than the square corners, nothing about Aero Glass in Windows 8 appears to be any different from Windows 7.

It appears bigger than the default theme in Windows 7, but perhaps having the buttons squared as well as the window borders just gives it that illusion.

Actually I love the fact that they squared everything. I hope it stays like that. I hate rounded borders on anything.

Agree 100%. I hate, hate, hate rounded corners. Mac OS X is the only OS I know of where they don't look like crap. I really hope the squares are here to stay. I'm going to hate it if they bring back the rounded corners by RTM.

And, as I pointed out in my own topic, I really like the improvements they made to Windows Basic. It was horrible in Vista and 7, but it looks great in 8. And it even takes advantage of the DWM! I would actually willingly use it over Aero Glass, since there is no performance penalty anymore and I really like its minimalism look.

Make sure your resolution is 1024x768 or higher. Metro apps require this.

In Dxdiag it says aero is working with WDDM 1.1 but my graphics card is old (Radeon HD3450). Is there some graphics card that works with the new WDDM 1.2?

Aero Glass has been supported in VMware Fusion since v3, so both Vista and 7 machines could have it.

The improved Windows Basic theme uses the DWM, though.
