I still think the default Start Screen is ugly as sin. I really wish Microsoft would focus on creating an attractive OoBE. Too many mis matched colors.
That is my main gripe with Windows 8 at the moment; however, I haven't been able to find a Start Screen configuration I'm happy with yet
I enjoy the light grey theme in the Consumer Preview, but the tiles for the built-in apps come in around six different colours, and no matter what combination of those I try, in terms of placing them on the Start Screen, it just doesn't look right/good. Microsoft must make some improvements, I think, before I'm happy with how the Start Screen looks. Allowing us to select different tile colours might be a start, even if that means the tile is a different colour to the app.
