You have to try using it. Immersive browser is pretty cool. There's limited slot so at least I wanna show how Aero UI looks like in normal desktop.

Here's screenshot of Immersive Browser UI in Metro Start Screen (Newgen).

This pack doesn't modify anything to system files or system configuration. It's the cleanest Windows 8 Shell Pack that offers the most so far.

Bit of a let down you can't just install the Windows 8 Aero theme without anything else.

Just uncheck Windows 8 features so you can get only theme (I consider logon screen and desktop wallpaper to be part of theme).

Pretty amazing work to be fair, seemed a bit buggy after the install, but restarted and it's all working fine!

It's really good, Apart from the Immersive UI stuff :(. The StartUI and ImmersiveBrowser are really ugly sadly.
