Someone brought this up already but the new desktop app tiles we saw on the surface are nice, can't wait to see what other little things like that they've yet to show us.

Runs surprisingly well on 1GB RAM... should probably give it a bit more, would have to stop some VMs though :)

I don't know. What's strikes me as funny is that 99.9% of the these pictures all look the same. There isn't enough customization to even post a picture. Same tiles, same backgrounds...but in any event, I think I may take the plunge and install it as my main os.....kinda nervous tho

I agree, I don't really get the point of showing the start screen..

Showing the desktop isn't much different unless we're comparing our wallpapers and how fancy we can align icons. Few people bother to go all out and install some 3rd party desktop app like windowblinds and start changing everything.

The desktop view looks virtually the same as Windows 7, so I thought I'd post my start screen:

As you can see, it's nothing particularly exciting. It's clean and functional. I'm still not a great fan of the tiles for non-Metro apps, though based on the article posted on the front page a while back it looks like they'll be overhauled before release - larger icons and smaller text will be much appreciated. Overall I like the new start screen, as I find it quicker to find and launch apps (you can fit a lot more apps in than the Vista/7 start menu).

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