I was not able to get all of the hardware running on my Windows 8 test machines so i will not be posting a screenshot (as the screen resolution is not proper) Also It says i have a wifi device simply wont enable it.

Okay - I'm Officially Curious.

What hardware failed?

(The fact that you have multiple test setups, each with different issues, while I have a successful traditional desktop, is why I'm curious.)

I am using a Acer Aspire 5570z. the Video driver is no supported (nor could windows update find a suitable driver), the Wireless card is acknowledged however, it tells me it cannot find any networks nor connect to them for some reason. While Under Windows Vista everything functions properly.

None of this bothers me as I am rather certain if I were to install this on my Desktop or within a Virtual Machine it would most likely function properly.

I have two VMs (one each of x32 and x64) on the Windows 7 x64 side of this same desktop; they're fine as well.

Wow this looks horrible. Why are the min/max/close buttons, along with the entire title bar so freaking huge? Surely not for the minimalists out there.

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.
