Agreed. Too many colors and gradients with little overall concept.

Besides, it's too early to be theming win8 when it there so many bugs left to fix.

Uh no. The point of releasing Alpha, Beta, CPs is for testing and development. Theming SHOULD be a part of that - so the theming community can hit the ground running.

Not so much since 7, although I do prefer themes like Soft7 and other pure glass themes for it, but previous OSs were pretty ugly (No pun intended)

People like to customise stuff. Why aren't your walls and floors bare at home?

People have different tastes. I wouldn't mind Windows 8 desktop looking a bit like the Office 15 Preview.
