It's not "WIndows" - at all. But It's nice. It's on the lines of the nike Swoosh or something, simple, elegant.

No, not at all. I like Segoe UI font and its WP variation. But that cross thing there reminds me more of the flag of Finland (or Denmark... Sweden or Norway). I was comfortable enough with the usual flag with removed shading, glow and crap, on a dark background, as seen in the Developer Preview. I had hoped it will stay there. :(

I'm not keen at all. They should have gone with one similar to the Microsoft Store one

Looks sleek and trendy, very simple and eye catching, I like it. I suspect a lot of people don't like it because it's just very very different.

Or Scotland, is what I thought of.

I just don't like the slant of the window, it looks weird the more I look at it. Straighten out the window, maybe even take advantage of some o'that fancy rendering and make some shiny lines on it, and it would be good.

Better question is who at MS approved this? I'd like a word with him. <_<

The font looks too big. Needs to be thinner and smaller.

I think it matches the OS, so no.

Not liking it now, but I'll get used to it once it gets used more and more.
